Nordic Skiing - Places Still Available

If you're quick, you might be able to catch the last available place on the 2010 Air Cadet Nordic Skiing exercise in Zwiesel, Germany, 15-24 January.

Cadets must be 16 years of age or over by 15 Jan 10, be prepared to stay for the duration of the Course and be prepared to ensure they arrive in good physical condition and sufficiently fit to undergo strenuous activities for a week in winter conditions.

Accommodation will be in a complex of self-catering chalets at Zwiesel. These have kitchens and communal areas with a central block which will be used for communal activities and briefings. The ATC Insurance Scheme and the MOD covers the cadets taking part in Nordic Skiing for third party public liability and personal accident. An additional winter sports premium is included within the personal contribution to cover medical and CASEVAC just in case you turn into a snowball, along with cancellation cover.

This is a heavily subsidised activity, so the cost to participants is a remarkable personal contribution of just £230 - to include the following main elements:

  • Self catering accommodation
  • Hire of Nordic ski equipment
  • Ski school fees
  • Additional winter sports insurance premium
  • Registration Fee for International Langlauf Award
  • Presentation night including meal on Fri 23 Jan 09
  • Extra Messing of £20.00
