Survival Skills For The Winter - REI


Do not add your name to the RSVP on here until after you have registered with REI in Eugene. It is quick and easy to sign up. The class has limited space, so sign up now, if interested. Currently there are 20 spots left.

Backcountry travel in the winter can open up whole new horizons for exploring the outdoors. But it can also expose you to new hazards. Come to this clinic to learn about skills and gear to stay safe in case something unexpected happens while you are out playing in the snow. Matt Bradley will talk about skills to make a fire and build a shelter in the snow. He will also give a few basic pointers about avalanche avoidance. Finally, he will talk about the basics of going prepared when traveling in the winter backcountry. Matt Bradley is an avid hiker, ultralight backpacker, traditional skills instructor, and student of nature. He is also Co-Founder of Whole Earth Nature School in Eugene.
