When you’re surviving towers out here, the weather can turn bad quickly.
To prepare for this, we go through Winter Survival Training: an intensive 5-day course that teaches us what to do if we get caught in nasty conditions.
We learn things like dropping flags so rescuers can find our location is we get lost.
Or how to dig a snow cave out of a tree well in case we’re stranded for hours or even overnight and need to take cover until rescue comes.
Surviving any tower to keep you connected requires training.
But here it requires survival training too.
