Survival skills for plush beach
resorts include the ability to hunt down massages and drink cocktails before
the ice melts. Embrace a more adventurous holiday with today’s Groupon: $289
for a guided trek, learn alpine survival skills, build a snow shelter plus a two-hour cross country ski lesson with K7 Adventures, Thredbo ($870 value).
Game Groupies meet their expert K7 Adventures guide at YHA Thredbo at 9.30am before venturing out into the mountains on a two-hour snow shoe trek. The group builds a snow shelter to keep them safe and warm, and learns essential alpine survival skills for the wilderness, weather, navigation, group management, hydration and how to prevent hypothermia. Take a break for a tasty lunch cooked upon a portable stove along with a hot drink to warm up chilly chaps and chapettes. If weather permits, adventurous individuals then practice their new-found skills with a two-hour trek around the area, before bunkering down for the night and heading back to base first thing in the morning. In inclement weather, groups return to Thredbo YHA to sleep. The second day kicks off with a two-hour cross country ski lesson, which converts follow up with two $25 vouchers for cross country ski tours that afternoon. Every Grouponite also receives two $50 vouchers for any K7 adventures.
