OK new thread started here.
Suggestions for our next time out there:
- some extra lessons on snow types and related uses/dangers
- more on trapping, fishing and foraging
- advanced shelter building and fire management in the (extreme) cold
- a couple of days solo, if safe without sleeping bag and mat
- a daytrip up one of those stunning mountains
- traveling in the snow (use of ski's/pulk/toboggan; camp routine; orientation/navigation)
- a sauna to finish
Agreed DUCky, and I'd love to do it again. Maybe a BCUK graduate Arctic course?!

Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
never shall we die.
Well, after reading this thread and the resulting follow ups, I'm pretty much sold on going on anything next time there's an opportunity.

Further to the conversations we had on the course I finally got around to designing that badge we discussed.
If you've been on one of the BcUK Arctic courses or something equivalent feel free to upload it into your signature.
