Iglu at The Ski and Snowboard Show

clock 5th November 2013 | comment0 Comments
That’s another ski show wrapped up for another year, and what great fun it was! The 2013 London Ski and Snowboard Show was held at Earls Court 2 from the 30th October through untill 3rd November. If you have never visited the ski show before – get it in your calendars for next year! It is the best way to find everything you need for the season ahead and definitely the coolest day out in the city.

Snow retailers from all over the country came to the ski show to showcase their brand new stock and sell off old stock at bargain prices. If you have spent the summer searching for a brand new pair of ski boots or a new snowboard but you haven’t been sure enough to press that buy it now button, the ski show is the perfect place to view your wish list items and talk to on hand experts to see if it is the right product for you.


If you are looking for some inspiration for your next winter holidays, representatives from large and small resorts from across the world exhibit at the ski show to give you a taste of what you could experience on your next ski trip. From the large European resorts of The 3 Valleys and Verbier, to resorts across the pond including Jackson Hole and Panorama to even Japan!

The Austrian Tirol Stand was one of my favourite exhibits this year which brought the Tyrolean charm from the heart of the Alps to central London. With its very own bar, themed seating areas, and even the Austrian après game ‘Tiroler Nageln,’ where players have to try hammer nails into a tree trunk using the wrong end of the hammer head.


If you've never tried skiing or snowboarding before, then the ski and snowboard show is the perfect place to give it ago without even leaving the city, or touching your wallet! Fully trained instructors from The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead are on hand through Ski Show week to give you 30 minute taster sessions.

As the event coincides with the local half term, year on year the Ski Show has more indoor activities for the family. As well as the skiing this year boasted ice skating, tubing, a scooter park, and even Burton Snowboards had the Riglet Park that offered snowboard lessons to children between 3-6 years old.

There really is something for everyone and all ages at the Ski and Snowboard Shows, this was my 4th year attending and I already cannot wait for next year.

My Top 5 Ski Shows Musts are:

1. Have Tartiflette for lunch
2. Get a free photo on a chairlift with your friends and family
3. Try Thunder Toffee Vodka
4. Take a look at ski resorts you've never thought about going to
5. Buy your new season bobble hat

clock 1st November 2013 | comment0 Comments
With less than 100 days to the Sochi Winter Olympics, excitement builds up as the first ‘London Snow’ event and Slide2Sochi Roadshow hits Covent Garden. If you missed our previous news blog on the event you can read more here

Great Britain’s Halfpipe Snowboarder and Sochi 2014 hopeful Dom Harington was at the opening of London Snow and spoke to us about his journey to the Winter Olympics.


As the Slide 2 Sochi road show continues up and down the country, taster sessions were given on the 5 metre by 10 metre real slope by fully qualified instructors. Slide 2 Sochi has been set up to actively encourage people of all generations to get behind Great Britain’s winter sports athletes and participate in skiing and snowboarding ahead of Russia’s Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.



With the emergence of a new generation of talented athletes the wait could finally be over for Team GB winning an Olympic medal in Ski or Snowboarding. With aims high and Slopestlye making its debut at the Olympics, Great Britain also hopes to smash the previous record of 4 medals at the 2014 winter games.

    Warren Miller's Flow State Tour

    clock 9th October 2012 | comment0 Comments

    The dates of Warren Miller's Flow State have finally been announced. This year's film will be spending the next few weeks travelling around the country showcasing some epic skiing on the big screen — then leaving us salivating until its DVD release in 2013.

    For both of the last two years we have made it to one of the showings, and we are already getting excited about an evening of big hits and epic powder lines, all on the big screen. Last year's film ...Like There's No Tomorrow was superb and will hit the shelves in the coming days, and Flow State looks easily as impressive.

    The guys at Warren Miller have been making incredible ski films for longer than any of us dare to remember, and the Warren Miller Tour is one of those great events that reminds you that winter is just around the corner. So, if you are missing the snow, want to see one of the biggest ski films of the winter on a huge screen and fancy winning a prize or two, then get yourself down to the Warren Miller 212 Tour.

    For a full list of dates and ticket information go to WarrenMiller.co.uk. If you haven't already seen it check out the Flow State trailer below.
