Snowsports Resources Updates

Snowsports Resources Updates - November 2011

 
Colleagues

The resources supporting snowsports have been updated. This has been done to streamline the number of resources required and to add support for cross country skiing where none existed in the past.

This will also be communicated via Scouting Plus and on the website.

Details of what has been updated and the reasons behind it can be found at scouts.org.uk/activitiesupdates.

Amendment to allow mixed groups of skiers and snowboarders under a skiing or snowboarding permit

Updated resource (January 2011):

Rule 9.33 Snowsports

a.       On piste is defined as: within the marked and patrolled defined snowsports area.

b.      A nursery slope is defined as: on piste runs designated for beginners by the body responsible for the snowsports area.

c.       For on piste snowsports the maximum party size is 12 skiers or 8 snowboarders. The maximum party size for a mixed skier and snowboarder group is 8; however where there are no more than 4 snowboarders in a mixed group, the group size can be increased to 12.

d.      Short term personal permit exemptions can be granted by appropriately qualified people, as described in the snowsports factsheet.

e.       Off piste covers all terrain not covered by 9.33a.

f.        For off piste snowsports the rules for hill walking and off road cycling should be followed in respect to party size, terrain, route cards, etc (see Rules 9.27 - 9.32).
