London Ski Show relocates
The London Ski and Snowboard Show is back for 2011, with a new home at Earl’s Court and a lot of exciting new features – as well as the regular attractions.
The show takes place from 19 to 23 October, moving from its former venue at Olympia to just down the road at Earl’s Court. So, no excuse to miss out on this great season-opener. It’s the chance to splash some cash on new equipment or clothing, book or plan your trip, mingle with snow fanatics and enjoy the competitions and parties.
The London show attracts huge numbers of visitors during its four-day stint, and over 200 exhibitors pack into the arena. You can wander around all day, stop on for the evening, or just pop in for an hour or two. It’s lively, friendly and entertaining. We love the atmosphere, especially during the week when it’s a bit less crowded. Meet and chat to lots of people about everything snow-related – and you know that everyone there will be as enthusiastic about the coming winter as you are.
For those keen to do a season in the Alps, the Natives jobs fair will open from 11am to 5pm on Saturday 22 October.
This year’s show highlights:
Watch the UK’s best riders: poised and ready to fly over the Trespass hip kicker
Your turn! The Pierre & Vacances Petanque Piste will give people the perfect opportunity to try out the French summer favourite in a snowy setting. Or perhaps you think you could create the perfect Ollie in the K2 Highest Ollie Tournament? There’s snow tubing and an Aosta rodeo to keep the family amused too.
Competitions and deals: Check out the latest ski and snowboard styles for this winter season and take advantage of offers exclusive to the show. As usual, there will be plenty of advice available from the professionals. Lots of prizes will be given away each day too.
Exclusive holiday deals: the world resorts area is the place to head for advice on where to go. And the major tour operators, as well as independent companies, will be on hand to answer questions or book your holiday for you.
The show doesn’t stop at teatime though, oh no – you can party on until 7pm or 10pm (Thurs/Fri) with the live music sessions and DJs. Last year, The Feeling topped the list. This year’s line-up has yet to be announced … but watch this space.
Tickets start at £10 in advance (adults) or £14 on the door. Weekend prices are £14 and £18. Children’s prices are from £4 weekdays (advance) to £7 weekend (on the door).
