kusk bushcraft knows a thing or two about winter survival shelter and sleeping outside in cold weather. Here are their top tips for staying warm and dry when the mercury drops.

1. Find a sheltered spot.

When choosing a spot to set up your winter survival shelter, look for an area that is protected from the wind. A thick stand of trees can offer some wind protection, or you can build a windbreak out of snow or other materials.

2. Create a floor.

Insulate yourself from the cold ground by creating a floor for your shelter. You can use a tarp, some brush, or even snow.

3. Make a fire.

A fire not only provides warmth, but it also helps to dry out your shelter. If you can’t build a fire inside your shelter, build one outside and use it to heat up rocks, which you can then bring into your shelter to place under your sleeping bag.

4. Ventilate your shelter.

Make sure to ventilate your shelter to avoid suffocation. If you’re using a tarp for your shelter, prop one end up with a stick or a rock so that air can circulate.

5. Stay hydrated.

Drinking plenty of water is important in any survival situation, but it’s especially important in cold weather. When your body is cold, it uses up more water to stay warm, so make sure to drink plenty of fluids.

With these tips, you’ll be able to stay warm and dry when sleeping outside in cold weather. Stay safe and happy camping!
