Located north of the Arctic Circle, near the northernmost point of Alaska, the S-V81-C Barren Land Arctic Survival training is known as Air Force’s frigid arctic survival school. This so-called Cool School has 50-mile winds and bone-chilling temperatures, showing service members how to get through some of the harshest conditions on earth.
