The Great Grey Owl (Strix Nebulosa)
The Great Grey Owl's habitat is the northern hemisphere's most inaccessible, inhospitable and sometimes ice cold subarctic woodlands.
The Great Grey Owl chase earnestly, calmly and methodically. With its disk-like head, used as a radar locates and hits its prey. Even through snow through snow that can carry an 80 kg person and down to 60 cm depth.
The Great Grey Owl started its recovery in Tornedalen, the same that the founder of Cold Skills grow up in. Parts of this area are now protected a Taiga forests where the great Grey Owl still lives in.
The Great Grey Owl symbolizes wisdom and thoughtfulness, but at the same explosiveness when needed. These are characteristics that a true survivor needs.
These are the reasons for us that we chose to let Great Grey Owl become our company's symbol and why we placed Camp Faravid in this area.
