This is an introductory weekend to the winter in Vermont. We do not expect you to be a survival expert, winter living is challenging, that is why we are excited to be running this course!
With several feet of snow on the ground, freezing temperatures, and scarce food, survival in the winter can be demanding. This course will serve as a thorough introduction to some of the skills needed such as: winter shelter building, winter hunting and trapping, survival snow shoes, winter fire making techniques, bark foods, and much more. This course will offer wisdom into the forested landscape in winter and all of the resources still available from it. The winter months are profound teachers of efficiency and effectiveness, bringing home the reality of survival skills in a winter environment such as Vermont.
