Metro Ski and Snowboard Show, a Family Winter Wonderland in the Heart of London
October 24th – 28th 2007 Olympia, London
With half term fast approaching, the question of how to entertain your little ones is not far from anyone’s mind.
The Ski and Snowboard Show – on the slopes with lastminute.com, is a one-stop shop to keep boredom at bay for children of all ages. The best bit is, after purchasing your family ‘Anti-boredom Pass’ at the door, all activities are absolutely free! Plus, without leaving the UK you and your family can experience wonders from around the world, all under one roof.
Fun on the Ice
Don’t miss a skate on the first ice rink to hit London this season! A truly magical experience for families - just don’t forget your gloves!
On route, be sure to take a peek at the international ice sculpting competition; accompanied by a pack of kid friendly, sledge pulling huskies - it’s a real showstopper.
It’s a fact that kids are fearless and learn at a rate of knots, so give them a chance to exploit this with a taster lesson. Under the watchful eye of a team of dedicated instructors, children can enjoy their first taste of skiing or boarding on our purpose built teaching slope.
A head for heights
If your children are real action jacksons, why not send them to experience the thrills and spills of our all-new children’s climbing wall. Under the expert supervision of our experienced experts, the feature will bring the world of climbing to life.
The show offers a fantastic opportunity to kit out the entire family for the season ahead, including 12 of the biggest brands and major retailers such as Ellis Brigham and Snow & Rock offering discounts. To keep the kids entertained whilst you’re picking out the bargains, a visit to the fashion show is a must, a dancing visual extravaganza guaranteed to wow all ages.
Children also get the chance to design their own board in a competition with plenty of fantastic prizes.
A cultural experience
Give your children the chance to experience cultures from across the world, all under one roof, with our World Resorts Village. Food and drink from countries such as Italy, France and Japan will be on offer to give palates a taste extravaganza. It doesn’t end there, with travel representatives from across the globe at hand to advise on the most family friendly new destinations and latest deals, tailor making your dream holiday is made easy.
If mums and dads are in need of a relaxing drink after an action packed day, head to the all new stunning roof terrace bar, where you can soak up the alpine atmosphere in style.
Ps. The free Ski Show crèche will be happy to look after your little ones whilst you enjoy a quick time out.
