Default Can anyone recommend a cold weather / snow survival school?

Me and my family would like to take a snow cold weather survival course. After snowmobiling this weekend we all started talking and I have to say I'd be clueless surviveing extreme cold weather. Tracking game and survival in the woods in nonextreme situations I feel fairly confident. When out playing this last weekend we noticed how disorienting the snow can be. We also noticed how physically demanding treading through it can be. Can anyone recommend a course here in Norcal?

First thing I thought of as well, great Jarhead minds think alike. The other option is East Coast assignment then Norway��. I did Mountain Warfare school in Bridgeport in Spring and it was still miserable, that cold river crossing sucked, couldn’t even breathe it just took the air out of your lungs.

My Google fu popped up this School a few times, no personal experience though, out of SoCal . Maybe read up some of the US military or other manuals too, Good luck

Handheld GPS for starters.

See if you can take the Alaskan state trooper survival course.

Chat with the guys who hunt in that area.

I have an inReach Explorer, cheap plan is $16/mo and you can upgrade/downgrade every 30 days to fit your travel plans. Many places I go have no cell service. The Iridium System upgrade is now complete, and should be better than ever. Cheap Insurance.

To start here is a great book for learning skills

https://www.amazon.com/Mountaineerin.../dp/1594851387

I would recommend starting in the Sierra's with overnights increasing to longer backpacks to get the idea. You have much heavier packs and more specialized gear. I love heavy snow backpacking, it ensures you are the only one there
