Find Shelter

  • Try to stay dry 
  • Cover all exposed body parts

No Shelter

  • Build a lean-to, windbreak or snow cave for protection from the wind
  • Build a fire for heat and to attract attention
  • Place rocks around the fire to absorb and reflect the heat

Melt Snow for Drinking Water

Eating snow will lower your body temperature.
