A Day in the Life of Alone
Outdoor skills from a star of the History Channel’s hit survival series
Woniya Thibeault was featured on Season 6 of the History Channel's Alone. Each week, viewers tuned in to see how she would survive in the wild. Now, Thibeault will present workshops inspired by the show to guests at The Resort at Paws Up. You'll visit her self-made camp and inspect her shelter, clothing, food and supplies—including the all-important 10 items she used on the show. Hands-on activities include tanning, fire starting and plant cordage making.
Thibeault is also available on a fee basis for private demonstrations or lessons

Woniya Thibeault : Outdoorsperson in Residency
Woniya Thibeault grew up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California. She was always drawn to and fascinated by the natural world. As a young woman, she devoted herself not just to studying biology but to learning to be part of nature. She learned skills that countless generations of our ancestors relied on before modern technology made us feel separate from the wild world around us.
Thibeault has been studying and teaching ancestral and land-based life skills for nearly 30 years. With a master’s degree in environmental science and a lifetime of wilderness experience, her teaching blends an understanding of and reverence for nature with the hands-on skills for feeling at home in it.
She is best known for her participation on Alone, where she was first the runner-up and then the first woman to win what has been referred to as the Olympics of Wilderness Survival. As a writer, teacher, speaker and consultant, Thibeault aims to inspire and empower others to remember their roots and live their wildest, freest lives.
