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 View our full gallery from The Ski & Snowboard Show By Krystelle

Top 5 Après Activities

clock 2nd August 2013 | comment1 Comments
There is still so much more fun to be had once the ski lifts have closed… There are numerous activities to explore in resort after a day’s skiing and here at Iglu we have tried and tested plenty of winter attractions and events to recommend only the best for you.   1. Tobogganing in Val Thorens Probably the most fun on snow you can have without skis! Toboggan down the longest track in France and revel in the spectacular views, hilarious moments and adrenaline rushes down the 6km run. From an altitude of 3000m at the Péclet glacier, it’s a 45 minute decent of sliding entertainment through varied slopes and raised bends. A fun filled family activity suitable for everyone from 5 years old.     2. Skidooing in Whistler Enjoy an unforgettable winter activity through pristine Canadian backcounty. See the slopes from a different angle & ride your very own skidoo through fresh powder or head into the remote wilderness with a professional guide. Scenic tours are a great introduction to the backcountry through tree-lined tracks and extraordinary landscapes.     3. Polo in St. Moritz The St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow is the world’s most prestigious winter polo tournament. Nearly 15,000 spectators from every corner of the world make the pilgrimage to Lake St Moritz every year. It is the social highlight in St. Moritz where the World Cup has been held every year since 1985. Don’t miss the next tournament 29 Jan – 01 Feb 2015!!     4. Bobsleigh in Innsbruck Experience high speeds up to 115km/h in a professional Olympic bobsleigh. This once in a life time activity will leave your adrenaline pumping for days after. Choose from the Guest bobsled where you can reach speeds of up to 90 km/h through the 800m long ice track, or unleash your inner dare devil and take the driven taxi bob and hit 115km/h over the 1270m ice track. Just don’t forget your lucky egg!     5. Ski Joering in Les Arcs Les Arcs has reinvented this traditional activity of being pulled along on your skis by a horse across all types of terrain. Originating in Scandinavia, competitive ski Joering is practiced all over the world. A series of forest trails in Les Arcs have been transformed into over 20km of Ski Joering routes in a natural environment of rare beauty.   By Krystelle

With the exciting news of the Royal baby being born, we couldn’t help feeling patriotic here at Iglu. With this in mind it gave us an excellent idea for this week’s top 5… Top 5 Royal Resorts.

A ski holiday is the perfect time to feel like royalty.  Here are our top 5 resorts that are fit for a king: 5. Klosters Klosters has acquired international status from the presence of Royals. This picturesque luxury Swiss resort is said to be Prince Charles’ resort of choice and Kate’s relationship with William was first publicised when she was invited to Klosters with the royals in 2005. The Royal Family have a long history at Klosters and would be the most likely destination to bump into them on a chairlift.

Meribel Situated at the heart of one of the world’s premier ski areas it is no surprise that the Royal Family love it in the Three Valleys.
