If you want to push yourself, to know your limits, face your fears and prepare to overcome great adversities in the winter mountain, do not hesitate. This is the course you were waiting for.
As a result of the collaboration with Carlos Vico (SurvivalXtreme), an old colleague in formations of the WGA and the first survival instructor I’ve ever had, this course is born.
This training is designed for people who already have winter survival experience and are seeking a specialization in cold environments. At the same time, it wants to give tools to winter sports practitioners in the high mountains to be able to manage unforeseen situations and danger appropriately, providing them with skills and knowledge, but also and above all, with the appropriate attitude to face a survival situation.
Survival can be summed up in three words – never give up. That’s the heart of it really. Just keep trying.BEAR GRYLLS

“Man can live forty days without food, three days without water, eight minutes without air, but only one second without hope.”CHARLES DARWIN
