    Closest thing I can find is a caseless caddis. These spin nets which funnel food.

    The leg positions look the same, differences in the mouth parts.

    upload it to a image hosting service like photobucket, then copy the URL link to the photo so you can embed it on this page.

    I stand corrected with a face full of crow. I was quick to judge from the snow, some rock crawlers (grylloblatids) forage on the snow and I've seen them often on ski trips.

    Nice work!

    Hi Derek-

    Maybe you'll settle for any Roger. It is certainly a beetle larva, probably a Woodland Ground Beetle, perhaps Pterostichus lama.
