Snowy Stag II

Last year’s “Exercise Snowy Stag” was so much fun we decided to do it again! The winter exercise is a one-day field trip to Mount Seymour where participating cadets are equipped with snowshoes and venture out to explore the over 10kms of trails maintained by the team at Mount Seymour Resort. Ten cadets took part in the Jan 26 adventure, under the leadership and supervision of the corps’ Training Officer, Capt. Leong.

In addition to practicing their snowshoe skills, cadets were also equipped with lightweight shovels and learned how to make snow caves and other winter survival training skills.

Snowshoeing is a great way to get active in the outdoors. It’s fairly easy to do, and not a lot of equipment is required. A good pair of winter boots, toque and gloves, dressing in layers, and a positive attitude are all you need. With a little experience and familiarity with the winter environment, next steps could include winter camping expeditions or maybe involvement in winter sports like biathlon.

Like all our planned activities, all costs are covered by the Cadet program. If you, or someone you know, is interested in joining us, please see the “How to Join” information on this website.
