Trust Support Ski Team For Championships

Published: 09 Feb 2016


Officially opened on 1 February, more than 300 winter sports participants from the armed forces gathered in Méribel for a week of competitions in this year's Inter Services Snowsport Championships.

Congratulations go to Squadron Leader Caitlin Wroe who was declared the 2016 Combined Service Ladies Alpine Champion following a fantastic performance.

Earlier in the season, the RAF Ski Team benefited from a £10,000 RAF Charitable Trust grant to help with their summer speed training camp in Chile in order to prepare for the Championships' speediest events!  The grant was awarded in line with the Trust's aims of promoting the RAF and supporting its people now and into the future.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
