  • Description

    United States paratroopers recently completed 30 days of rugged mountain training in the shadow of Mt. Blanc, Europe's highest mountain. The course, supervised by expert Italian trainers, took place near Aosta, Italy.

    The training consisted of basic fundamentals of skiing, marching on skis, classroom theory on bivouacs, mountain patrolling, mountain survival, and a large scale exercise including a night bivouac. The course was climaxed by a cross country ski run, with the man carrying full packs.
