The Modern Survival: Basic Winter Survival course picks up where the Wilderness Skills course leaves off. This module of the course is designed to equip you with additional skills to not only identify the onset of hypothermia but prevention and treatment with core survival techniques which will extend your wilderness adventures into year-round endeavors. We will learn to use the axe and rely upon it more so than the knife throughout the course and use it to fell a tree to create tinder, kindling, fuel and shelter components. Fire skills are also based around wet and/or cold weather-related issues. The primary topics discussed are:

  • Weather Forecasting

  • Food Considerations

  • Axemanship

  • Winter Fire Kits

  • Fire Skills for Wet Weather

  • Water Immersion & Exercises

  • Winter Shelters

  • Sleeping Hacks

  • Winter Self-Aid

All of this information is covered in detail in our Field Book Series and Online Course
