Humberside and South Yorkshire go skiing

  • Humberside And South Yorkshire ACF

During the February half term (20-25th February 2022), Cadets and Adult Instructors from Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force attended a Skiing Trip in Scotland. The Alpine skiing expedition’s attendees had a varied skill set from individuals who had no experience at all to those who had skied regularly. The expedition allowed personnel to gain a Ski Foundation Level 1 qualification.

The programme for the event was packed with Skiing fun and all cadets managed to achieve. After mastering the basic skills of the snowplough, some cadets even managed to introduce themselves to parallel skiing – a huge accomplishment in such a short space of time. There was plenty of laughter and stories to tell as many ended up falling down the slopes – including the more experienced adult instructors! This was a fantastic introduction to the potential that the new Adventurous Training Syllabus has to offer and the County are looking forwards to similar expeditions becoming a part of their yearly calendar.

Thank you to the Yorkshire Cadet Trust and ACCT UK who helped to fund this event.
