The winter environment can be unforgiving. What would otherwise be an uncomfortable event in the summer, can quickly become a threat to life or limb in the winter. Cold, wind, and travel difficulty are big magnifiers requiring knowledge, confidence, and attention to detail.
Join Lifeflight of Maine for a progressive exposure to winter living and survival skills for people who have limited winter experience and may become suddenly stranded in a winter situation such as an aviation incident, backcountry rescue or snowmobile breakdown. CEHs available.
