    Cold Weather Leaders Course 19-004 students fire from the prone position at the Northern Warfare Training Center’s Black Rapids Training Site during the 10-kilometer biathlon March 12, 2019. The Cold Weather Leaders Course trains squad- and platoon-level leaders in the knowledge and skills required to successfully conduct small unit operations in a cold, snow-covered environment. Emphasis is placed on the effects of cold on personnel and materiel, use of basic cold weather clothing and equipment, winter field craft, snowshoe and ski techniques and winter or cold regions navigation and route planning. Attendees receive comprehensive instruction and training materials enabling them to implement basic cold weather and ski training programs within their units. Cold weather risk management procedures are stressed throughout the course of instruction. (Army photo/John Pennell)
