Cutting temperatures, white out storms, and feet of snow blanketing the land requires a different animal to perform and operate where others cannot. If you can learn to adapt to the winter, you can use the difficulties to your advantage.
In Winter Scout we will cover a wide range of topics such as: winter camouflage, tracking and counter tracking in snow, concealed snow shelters, winter scouting gear, team movement, winter trapping, ninjutsu with all those winter clothes on, and much more. We also engage with the challenges of objective planning, team coordination, and the fine art of keeping each other alive when the environment can kill you quickly.
Expect challenging weather, situations, and team work, and be prepared to work hard and learn fast.
Pre-requisite: Ancient Scout or an equivalent course at another school.
