WEISS Survival Course (Winter)

The Arctic and sub Arctic climate is one of the worlds most beautiful yet most dangerous! It is also this pristine wilderness which offers the brave “bushcrafter” and back woodsman a chance to challenge themselves as well as to extend their knowledge and abilities whilst studying new skills as well enjoying a rare adventure in a winter wonderland with dream like magnificence.

Upon completing this course you will have earned the right to wear the Winter bar (badge) which can be worn above the much coveted WEISS badge, a sign of distinction, a sign that you are now a highly skilled, motivated and knowledgeable outdoors person who stands head and shoulders above their peers – simply put ‘The Best of the Best’

As with WEISS there is no kit list given and students, being at an advance level, are required to bring the appropriate equipment and clothing however you should be aware the below specialist items will/can be loaned to you.
