The aim of Ex SL is to introduce competitive snow sports (Alpine, Telemark, Snowboard (SB) and para-snowsports) to service personnel and enable the introduction to racing in Scotland.
The objectives of Ex SL are to:
- Encourage novice participation in snow sports to develop a competitive skill base in an unfamiliar environment that empowers the individual to better cope with stress, pressure and fatigue.
- Develop Unit teams of the future, B Teams, development squads and female teams from units that already have a snow sports presence and introduce those units with no history of competing at snow sports to racing in a controlled environment.
- Identify and nurture new snow sports talent to progress into unit teams and on to the Divisional and Army Championships .
