Survival Debris Hut in WinterMankind is uniquely able to adapt himself to most any condition in some way. Keep this in mind when dealing with adverse winter environments. As part of our comprehensive training program we ultimately teach not only how to survive the brutal conditions brought about by winter, but how to make yourself comfortable. Check out info on our training program, known as the CEC Survival Levels (here)

Winter may be tough, but remember there is a certain equalization in nature, the Eskimo learned to take what nature threw in their way and turn that into a positive, such as the igloo made of the wind driven snow and cut into blocks to make a shelter or house in which to weather the cruel storms.

Be sure to check out this page for announcements on training and get together activities we hold during the winter.

This page will also post helpful hints, notes, and videos relating to Winter Survival. We will show you how to make your own gear, or choose what is best to buy, what is good at the ski resort may not be the best to have for winter survival. We will show you in our training how to satisfy the “Six Elements of Survival” as they relate to winter. These six elements are listed below, not necessarily in order:

  • Fire
  • Water
  • Shelter
  • Food
  • Medical
  • Social/Rescue

For more detailed information on our training check out CEC Survival Levels

We have a section here called “Club Zero” which is a forum where people can post their winter adventures. These shared experiences help others to learn what works best. There is also a section for bragging about your worst conditions you have been in, this can be encouraging to others when they realize what people can get through, and how they did it.
