National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

13 January 2015

2015 got off to an exhilarating start for hundreds of Young Farmers across England and Wales on the annual YFC Ski trip.

With thanks to tour operators, Outgoing, over 450 members travelled to Tignes in the Northern Alps to enjoy one of the most significant events in the Young Farmers calendar.

As well as some of Europe's best slopes, members also enjoyed a wide variety of activities, including camping in the wilderness, Apres ski and an evening with DJ Wire. There was even a guest appearance from Supermoo!

The fancy dress theme for this year's trip was 'Retro', and once again, our Young Farmers failed to disappoint, sporting a wide variety of amazing outfits. 

Georgina Saxon, of Selby YFC, attended the trip as Yorkshire's ski rep. She said: "I had a fantastic time. I have skied before on previous YFC Ski trips and always had an amazing time. It is great to go with such a large group of people who are all just as crazy. After braving the very long bus journey it was definitely worth it and Selby YFC couldn't wait to get out on the slopes!

"One of the highlights was one of our members getting us all a 'surprise'...which turned out to be snails... that was a very entertaining evening for sure! Finally, we all made it back in one piece with lots of great memories and plenty of tired muscles! Definitely a holiday to remember!"

Caroline Baker, of County Durham FYFC, said: "12 members from County Durham FYFC travelled to Tignes. We were very noticeable wearing matching retro tie dye hoodies! Very easily identifiable on the slopes and in the bars! We all stayed in Dragon Lodge, Tignes and enjoyed yummy food and chilled out parties before joining up with the remaining 450 young farmers!!"

The Ski Trip is just one adventure that NFYFC members can enjoy in the Federation's YFC travel programme. For any Under 18 members, there is still an opportunity to apply for this year's Tall Ships Adventure. Click on the link for further details.
