Winter Skills Adventure Program

Our Program

Do you like snow? 

Would you like to camp in the snow and sleep inside an igloo or some other kind of snow structure? 

If you answered yes, then this is the program for you! 

The Winter Skills Adventure Program will teach you how to camp in the snow.  We cover all aspects of winter camping and outdoor travel in a condensed classroom session and a overnight guided field trip

Our #1 goal is a safe and fun experience in the mountains.  Because of this, you should have previous backpacking experience before participating in this High Adventure Program. 

In the program, we will teach you the basics of Snow Camping and you will learn how to:

  • build a snow structure for sleeping
  • dress warm and dry
  • sleep warm
  • cook in the snow
  • start a campfire on snow
  • perform winter First Aid and basic survival skills
  • identify and avoid dangerous avalanche conditions
  • practice outdoor ethics in the snow

This is a Fun Program!

Share one crazy adventure with your favorite Scouts!

Eat, Sleep and Breathe in the Snow!

You Build what you Sleep in!
