Photographs of the Inter Services Snow Sports Championships. The competition invites those from across the 3 services, after they have competed in their service specific competitions in the weeks before. These photos show the Telemark Classic event, where riders come down the telemark course, and at the bottom, they go around a bowl, and then "skate" uphill and then back towards the finish line. It's said amongst the competitors that "if you cant take your skis off at the end, you haven't ridden hard enough". © UK MOD Crown Copyright 2017
