Alpine Adventure 2019


#1

Is anyone going on Alpine Adventure next year


#2

If u are going just say what wing ur in


#3

What is it?


#4

An alpine skiing exercise for cadets


#5

See this page for more info:

It is kind of a joint B&G wing / SW Region thing but with some other wings invited to attend - NEScot for example.
A week of downhill skiing that caters for all abilities.


#6

Why cant they extend it up Yorkshire way :frowning_face:


#7

They might if somebody asks them, but it is often predicated on the wing in question being able to provide qualified ski staff.


#8

Of course. I’m being facetious (not bitter at all wink wink)


#9

Had I known about it, I’d volunteer. I’ve got the requisite NGB qual and experience.

NW-based if anyone’s reading this and are interested :wink:


#10

I thought that the ATC didn’t sponsor downhill skiing as it’s too much like a holiday?
That’s why the Corps ran Nordic Skiing expeditions!
Obviously this has changed?


#11

Nobody said it was sponsored.


#12

Sponsor / authorise, rather than sponsor / contribute financially.


#13

I doubt it is any more of a holiday than most overseas camps :smiley:


#14

I think it was ment to be offers to every squadron but the aplcation date is over now


#15

They didn’t support it the full price was £725


#16

Do they support it with pay and allowances?

Sorry. I forgot!!! It’s not pay as we are not employees! I meant to say Voluntary Allowance!
Please pass me the RAFAC bar of soap so I can wash my mouth out!!!


#17

Nah we pay for the trip the RAFAC dont fund any of it


#18

I remember it being quite expensive…not quite sure how much it would cost out of cadets


#19

It’s £725 for cadets


#20

Same for staff also
