Our Classic Trek Returns in 2023

"The trip itself is a lot of fun - provided you are reasonably comfortable outdoors. I had a great time hiking though the winter woods and building structures and tools with minimal equipment. It is a course worth taking just for the fun of the activity. I would highly recommend it to anyone who can enjoy the outdoors without a feather mattress." — WST Participant
Moving between Camps on the Winter Survival Trek Cooking on the Winter Survival Trek

This advanced Winter Survival Trek (WST) allows you to practice winter survival skills by travelling over four days between three separate camps. Skills covered include safe winter travel, snowshoes use, route selection, camp selection and practical cooking over a fire. The total route will normally be about 30km's of hiking in snowshoes over a four day period. You will need to be in good shape and willing to climb some slopes and take part in route finding challenges found during the trip. The route will be hilly, snow-covered and involve travel in late winter in the foothills of the Eastern Slopes of the Canadian Rockies.
