Winter Woodsman And Frozen 48 Up Next At Field School

December 6-12 we’re running our Winter Woodsman course, followed immediately by the Frozen 48 Winter Survival Challenge. The Winter Woodsman is our introduction to winter. We cover the particulars of living out in the winter, from clothing and tools to fire and shelter, as well as cover the traditional gear and techniques that make living out in the cold an enjoyable experience. There is a strong emphasis on axe use and fire; core skills that make winter living safe and enjoyable.

Immediately following the Winter Woodsman is the Frozen 48 Winter Survival Challenge. Participants walk into the woods Saturday morning with limited gear (axe, knife, pot, tarp, matches) and spend 48 hours in the forest. This exercise is designed specifically for those with experience who want to push themselves.

Winter in the northern forest is an amazing time to be outside. But the cold is relentless, magnifying any accident or mishap. Without a solid skill set it’s not advisable to venture too far from the road. If you don’t have that skill set, these courses are one way to get it. We’ll be accepting registrations for both programs up until December 1st.
