This came up while discussing the relative merits (?) of going tubing, flying off hills, landing in snow banks, etc. while waiting to see if an AFA appointment is forthcoming. He understands that an injury now could end everything, but what about once someone gets to the AFA? I have seen many threads that discuss all the possibilities for skiing in the CS area--there have to be some cadets that twist an ankle or even break a bone. What happens then? Are they booted out since they can't pass a fitness assessment while injured? Does it matter what year they are in? 1st degree and almost done or 4th deg. and just beginning? Really just curious, I'm sure the cadets aren't wrapped in bubble wrap for 4 years!
