Find an area: The hardest task to starting a fire in the snow is protecting the fire from the snow (melting snow) and as well as any cold gusts. So, remember to be aware of your surroundings.
Gather Firewood: When gathering firewood, pick up wood from the ground that is already dead. A good place to find some dead wood and branches are at the bottom of trees. When the snow is heavy, this is a place where dead branches are going to be the driest.
Begin to build the fire: Before you begin to build a fire, separate your firewood from a wet or damp ground. Once your fire starts burning, start placing larger pieces of wood onto the flames. Try not to get frustrated when doing this. Be patient and focus on maintaining your fire.
Now enjoy your primitive caveman pride and remember that fire is important for survival!
