Metro Ski and Snowboard Show is making a welcome return to London’s Olympia from 22–26 October 2008.
You don’t have to be a winter sports pro to enjoy a memorable day out at the Metro Ski and Snowboard Show. This year, the show is a fully interactive experience, showcasing a host of new features including curling and a chilled out ice bar, alongside existing favourites such as the ice rink and the world resorts village. Whether it’s watching a fashion show, checking out the pros in action, doing some shopping or simply sitting back with a drink and soaking up the Alpine atmosphere, there’s something for everyone…
The centrepiece of the 2008 show will be the 40ft kicker, allowing some of Europe’s top riders the opportunity to get more air at the show than ever before. The show is hosting the British Snow Tour Invitational Championship and the London Ride competition.
Trespass Ice Kingdom
For visitors wanting the perfect place to chill out, look no further than the Trespass Ice Kingdom. You can kick back in a sub-zero environment and listen to DJ’s in the real ice bar or get a little more active on the ice rink. The ice sculpting competition and husky dogs are also a must-see at this year’s show.
For the fashionistas amongst you, head straight to the Brand Arena, where practical apparel meets high fashion, with iconic brands such as Bonfire, Rossignol, Degre7, Westbeach, Columbia and Salomon launching their winter collections. You’re guaranteed to find the kit to set you apart from the crowds on the slopes this winter.
World Resorts Village
If you’re craving a taste of something a little continental, experience fine cuisine from across the world, without having to leave the show. Mouth watering delights from France, Austria, Italy and Japan will be sure to satisfy all palates.
2008 sees the return of the hugely popular Gigloo – the gig in an igloo – playing host to live bands & DJs. With a bigger stage and bigger acts in conjunction with XFM, the Gigloo will be hosting an awesome line-up of live music every evening and feature DJ and breakdance workshops during the day.
Get away from it all…
If you fancy a bit of down-time, relax under the aurora at the Activities Abroad Northern Lights Experience or head to the World Resorts Village to catch up on what’s new this season with talks from some of the world’s best resorts.
