I am currently in 1RSME doing the B+SF course. I have been interested in getting into SnowBoarding as a hobby and heard there is a RE Team... does anyone know if you have to be semi-pro to get on the team, or are there ways the team train you to ride?
Some regiments have teams which participate in the snowboarding camps/competitions in Stubai alongside the RE Alpine Ski Camp. I am not sure if there is a Corps team, if there were it'd most likely be located in Germany at 28, to hazard a guess.
And if it is anything like 35 Regt in the 80's, when selected you'll spend 5 months of the year away, and your job will be covered by some other poor sod - on arrival back, tanned up and totally shag happy, you can ask for (and get) all the courses and cadres you missed - and the same poor sod will cover for you again and so on and so on.
It's a wonderful life if you can get it! Yes - you Snow Queens know who you are....!
