The World’s Greatest Explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, will be appearing at this year’s Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Festival in Battersea Park, running from 24-27 October. And Where to Ski and Snowboard has three pairs of tickets to give away to the event — worth at least £43.30 per pair.

Sir Ranulph will be hosting a speaker session on Friday 25 October for travel enthusiasts, followed by a book signing — he has authored no less than 23 books and 2019 marks ten years since he became the first Briton to climb Everest.

This year’s Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Festival is running for the fifth year in a row at Battersea Evolution, and expects to draw crowds of even more than 17,000, who visited in 2018 breaking records since the event’s move to its new location in 2015. The festival has in total been running for 46 years and has traditionally been the start of the winter ski season for British skiers and snowboarders.

Along with destination exhibitors from Tirol in Austria to Sierra Nevada to Ski Vermont, there will tour operators large and small, inspiration and advice for beginners to experts from the likes of renowned ski coach Warren Smith and Team GB’s Winter Olympic and Paralympic skiers and snowboarders. There will also be plenty of kit to buy — the latest available from this year’s range to last year’s bargains.

The festival also includes craft beer tasting, a street food village, curling on the ice rink, competitions, DJ sets, comedy and a line-up of live music. Not to be missed!

Tickets start at £21.65 per person (including access to the après event).
