How difficult? Slide downhill, powered by gravity, brush the snow off your toboggan, get drunk.

Not entirely true Cloudbuster.

Finding the hotel is a hassle, getting up early with a hangover is never easy.

Polishing runners in the cold is not only boring but hard work.The ride down the track is noisy, scary and if you get it wrong you bear the scars for life.

Anyone recallign a Pete G*** PT beasting will also confirm it was no walk in the park

Getting drunk was a duty which was rigidly adhered to, Gluwhein was on sale at most venues and it was considered insulting to the locals if we didn't partake :D

Ahhhhhhhh!!!! Sweet memories of 664 (Independant Bobsleigh) Sqn. From 1989 to 1992, the only exercise or deployment (Other than Gulf 1) was to a bobsleigh run. RoJos band of elite lycra wearing work bandits would attend in force.
