Join us for a 6 mile hiking tour in Winter Conditions as learned our expert advice on the Ten Essential Systems for the backcountry.  We hike in Yaktracks with trekking poles and study one system at each break and also learn how to use white gas stoves for backcountry cooking.  We study Navigation, Illumination, Sun, Medical, Knife, Fire, Shelter, Clothing, Food and Water and our secrets for each one.  This highly educational course is taught at Aldefer Three Sisters and Staunton State Park and also done in snow shoes if snow levels permit.
