London’s alpine festival and the UK’s leading consumer winter sports event is back this year and will return to last year’s venue of Battersea Park. The show draws in huge crowds each year with live demos & contests, Q&As, a huge retail area, ice skating and copious alpine-themed food and drink stalls. Early bird tickets are now on sale.
Press Release: The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show returns to Battersea Evolution at Battersea Park 26-29 October with thrill-seeking entertainment, informative talks and demonstrations, an offering of the latest apparel and equipment and opportunities to lap up the après lifestyle before the winter season kicks off!
Taking place over half term, the Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show has something to offer the complete beginner, the seasoned pro and everyone in between.
In the lead up to the 2018 Winter Olympics, visitors will have the chance to get up close and personal with the strs of the British Ski and Snowboard team during Q+A sessions in the Mountain Talks Theatre and marvel at their impressive stunts on the 50-ft real snow kicker – Mount Battersea. This year’s athletes will compete in a brand new big air competition, presents by Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, where riders will do their best to impress the judges for a prize pot share of £3,000 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place!
The main hall features a broad range of exhibitors including ski resorts, tour operators, all the top ski and snowboard brands, and a tech innovation zone with the most cutting-edge gadgets for winter.
Visitors are invited to the Mountain Talks Theatre, brought to you by Neilson, with a line up of expert guest speakers covering sustainability, avalanche safety and screenings of some of the industry’s best ski films.
To complete the après activities, there will be an ice skating rink (now open for booking), late night après on the Friday and Saturday, live music and comedy performances and alpine-themed food and drink stalls offering everything from hot chocolate to tartiflette.
