In Army winter sports determination is required to carry out daily and rigorous training and to complete often dangerous or exhausting events. Decision-making under extreme pressure is practiced all the time and often has to be carried out in milliseconds. These are all requirements for the modern-day soldier. Part of routine Army Winter Warfare Training includes teaching some soldiers to ski. From this basic level the more talented progress to various Army Ski Championships or branch out into the other winter sports disciplines.
Conveyance of Weapons and Ammunition
Ex organisers and Team Captains are to be aware of the potential security risk in the event that teams have to return to the UK prior to original travel dates and times and have to wait at Terminals for available travel slots.
The potential exists for increased security risk due to illegal immigrants trying to access vehicles to cross to the UK as the items carried are Attractive to Criminal and Terrorist Organisations (ACTO).
This issue must be considered, therefore Ex organisers and Team Captains are to engage with travel companies prior to arrival at the point of departure to ascertain if an agreement can be made for immediate crossing if notified several hours in advance for those vehicles with weapons / ammunition on board.
Please note these exercises may not take place in the event that the Land Operation Command (LOC) suspends all Winter Activity until 31 Mar 21.
