A group of 19 cadets and staff from the Tsawwassen 828 Hurricane Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron participated in a demanding three-day winter survival exercise earlier this month at Britton Creek near the Coquihalla Summit.

The focus of Exercise Frostbite was for the 13to 18-year-old cadets to apply their winter survival knowledge, leadership and team building skills in a challenging physical environment.

The cadets established a base camp, built snow shelters, went on a night snowshoe hike and had a lesson on radio operation.
