Ski and Snowboard Show 2012 – Earls Court 2
In Earls Court 2 this year, opposite West Brompton Tube, £4.50 a pint at all bars, main ones are Heavenly stand as you enter, the Norway resort bar and the one next to the slope. Prince of Wales is designated pre/post show pub.
So……. The big retailers Snow & Rock, Ellis Brigham, North Face and Tresspass and new kit everywhere. Some good deals on Oakleys at the Eyewear Outlet stand, Ortovox with some new models, too many new skis to think of plus a whole host of other stands selling mostly something to do with skiing – remote control Helicopters anyone?
USA, Canada, Norway, Italy tourist offices are here in a big way and while Espace Killy and Paradiski had representation there is nothing from The 3 Valleys (spending all their money on new lifts instead perhaps?).
Lots of tour ops including Alpine Elements and smaller chalet companies such as the Ski Bluebird guys from 1650 on the Huck Cancer stand.
Wine tasting in the Virgin Wines stand £10 on Saturday has to be done too. Add in the ski jump on to an air bag, the instruction slope, ice rink, curling, Penguins and more interactive stuff and it should be rammed on Saturday…
See you in the Norway Resorts Bar (probably) on Saturday………
