“I thought I would take you out on a hike with me while I go over a lot of the variables involved in choosing the right locations to spend the night on snow or perhaps if you are going to build a shelter as well. These are the basics so if you’re already an expert this video is not for you so go watch The Punisher or something.” –Les Stroud

Valuable winter survival lessons taught by Les Stroud as he casually takes a winter hike through the woods with his survival consultants (a pair of black labs), pointing out things someone should be looking for if you have to hunker down and find overnight shelter. Hopefully these lessons will never come into practice but I highly recommend spending the 30 minutes watching this video for a quick overview on locating emergency shelter locations in a winter setting.
