What is the role of a buddy?


The role of a buddy primarily is to enable their veteran gets the most out of the ski week. This entails:

  • Meeting their veteran in the morning

  • Making sure their vet has everything they need for the day

  • Ensure their veteran is comfortable with the plan for the day and where they need to be and when

  • Ensuring their vet gets on the bus up the mountain on time

  • Spend the day skiing with their vet

  • In the evenings, making sure they know where they need to be and at what time

  • Supporting them throughout the week and making sure they are happy

  • Overall assisting with the smooth running of the week
