So now you have learned from the other classes how to get out and play in the winter wilderness, but what do you do if you get stuck out there for an uplanned night while on a day trip? This classroom session will be held in Colorado Springs and will discuss the gear requirements and concepts of survival in the winter wilderness of Colorado. We will then spend a day in the wilderness to put those concepts to practice. We will build several types of winter shelters and review other winter survival tips and tricks.  The course will be over on day one in the field, buy you can stay on your own to spend the night in them using just what you carry on a winter day trip, or a bit more if you are concerned. Staying overnight will not be a CMC sanctioned trip, you will be on your own.  The classroom session is on 20 Feb from 6:00p to 9:30p.

The field session is 23 Feb all day. All field sessions are scheduled as CMC trips. The cost for this class is $50 for Pikes Peak Group members and leaders and $65 for all others. A general fitness level to travel on snowshoes, and to dig snow shelters for long periods is required. The target audience is anyone who goes on day trips in the winter in any snow environment.


There is a $10 cancellation fee. No refund will be provided in the week prior to the class.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
