Are you interested in trying new things, learning new skills, feeling more confident with Winter adventuring? Whether you spend time in the backcountry & are looking to feel more prepared in case of emergency or maybe your just looking to spend a day having fun & meeting like minded people, this workshop is for you!
The day will include building a Quinzee (shelter made from compacted snow) fire building, winter safety tips & off trail snowshoe. The Adventure Bus is co hosting this workshop with a local bushcraft expert and it will be an awesome day of skill building while also having lots of fun playing in a snow cave…let your inner child roam free!
No experience necessary just the ability to actively participate in shelter building & snowshoeing! During the shelter building everyone will be actively assisting with creating the shelter, there will be breaks for lunch and for some demonstration portions of the workshop.
