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. With these, students learn signal for rescue and build snow caves and igloos. They also got to gain first-hand experience on finding food and staying healthy from the local indigenous people.
