Mountain Survival is the ultimate business adventure and an incredible opportunity to mix outdoor fun into a business context. Groups will complete a series of stations containing a mix of mental and physical challenges and earn survival points. Successful teams will plan, communicate, co-operate, develop leaders, assess risks and solve complex problems throughout the adventure. The groups with the most survival points will earn survival awards.
Build a Shelter - using the equipment provided, imagination, and the natural resources build a temporary shelter/snow cave large enough to protect 5 members of your team from the elements. (Maybe substituted with Teepee or Expedition tent).
Search & Rescue - the teams will learn how to use a modern Avalanche Beacon and/or GPS unit and find hidden targets in the wilderness. It's a great teamwork challenge.
Tyrolean Traverse - the teams learn how to set up a Tyrolean traverse and safely cross a stream on an overhead zip line with helmets, harnesses and rope.
Fire & Water - an essential survival skill is fire. The teams learn how to start a fire without any man-made materials and purify water using the boil method.
M*A*S*H/First Aid - the team is given a scenario that tells them one of their team just broke a leg. The team must designate someone to be injured and treat the injury appropriately using the first-aid kit. The team must then transport the injured victim to the Base camp checkpoint.
