From Snow Plough to Super G

Alpine Skiing (sometimes referred to as downhill skiing) has always been a key part of Corps life with regular opportunities for all soldiers to take to the slopes.

Not skied before? No problem

At the end of each year The Annual Race Camp – Alpine Mercury Glacier (Ex AMG) takes place. Ex AMG is open to all, from those who have never donned skies before to those who compete at the highest levels.

Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill

The exercise runs for four weeks and will not only take novices from blue to black runs and beyond but it enables them to compete in Alpine disciplines by the fourth week.

Beyond The Corps

Units also have the opportunity to, and are encouraged to, commit a team to the Army competition.

Ski Race Team

Corps racers compete annually

Corps Championships

Rail, rotate, race

Alpine skiing at inter-unit level is thriving. The annual training camp and championships (Ex ALPINE MERCURY GLACIER) typically hosts in excess of 100 racers all ably supported by a team of qualified instructors and officials from across the Corps.

Hard fought, and as tense as ever, the climax of the 2015 competition saw Sig Grand crowned overall male individual winner and Capt Keddie the overall female winner.

Army skiers

Reaching great heights

The Divisional and Army Championships held in January 2016 saw seven Corps Units take part.  From the teams competing at the Divisional Championships, seven individuals went on to qualify for the Army Championships, forming the Corps Alpine Race Team, where they put in a credible performance.

Carve and schuss

Thinking of giving skiing a go? Each year every Unit is invited to compete at the Corps Championships. All units should have an OIC Alpine Skiing who can provide information on Alpine Skiing.

Mentally and physically challenging, not only is skiing an excellent sport it also facilitates some superb Adventurous Training.
