The FANYs started 2016 by taking in Exercise SNOW FOX XXI in Val D’Isère, France. Exercise Snow Fox is the pan-Yeomanry Alpine Skiing Championship which aims to promote fitness, physical agility, teamwork and leadership.
This year 14 FANYs took part and were once again very successful, not only winning the ladies competition, but four of the top five ladies were FANYs. Four of the six beginners took part in the racing - a huge achievement considering it was not only their first time on a red run, but they were also expected to ski a set course in very tricky weather conditions.
It provided a unique opportunity to participate in, and experience the excitement and challenge of, competitive winter sports and to further develop relationships with fellow Yeomanry Reservists.
