News From Metro Ski And Snowboard Show

Metro Ski and Snowboard Show - Bringing the Mountains to the City

24th-28th October 2007 Olympia, London

You don’t have to be a winter sports fanatic or a regular on the slopes to enjoy a memorable and exciting day out at the Metro Ski and Snowboard Show – now in its 34th year.

This year, the show is an all-singing all-dancing interactive experience; combining both regular favourites such as the teaching slope and the World Resorts Village with eight all-new features, including London’s first ice rink of the season and a music venue the ‘gigloo’.

Whether it’s watching a fashion show, learning how to land a jump, doing some shopping or simply sitting back with a drink and soaking up the Alpine atmosphere, there’s something for everyone.

Snow Sports
If you’re looking for some hands on experience, beginners and enthusiasts alike have an opportunity to try their hand at snow sports. An experienced team of experts is ready to guide beginners on the purpose built teaching slope and all new ice rink.

For those seeking more adrenalin fuelled activities, why not take a look at the pros on the Trespass Quarter Pipe or Burton Rail Jam brought to you by Land Rover. Whilst you’re there, you can even scale an ice face on our Crystal ice climbing wall.

For the style fashionistas amongst you, head straight to the Brand Arena, where practical apparel meets high fashion, with iconic brands such as Oakley, Salomon, Nike ACG and Burton launching their winter collections. With a highly charged visually explosive fashion show, you’re guaranteed to find an outfit and equipment to set you apart from the crowds on the slopes this winter.

If being out on the slopes all day gives you a touch of frostbite, then head to one of our four entertainment areas to warm yourself up.
For those who love their music as much as their ski holidays, the Gigloo is a must! For the first time ever, we will be hosting a series of exclusive live gigs from a unique ‘igloo’ venue, in conjunction with XFM.

If you’re still in need of some entertaining, a visit to the Image Gallery and all-new Dare2b Video Wall area is a must. View a selection of winter imagery captured by the general public -from ultimate wipe-outs to sunsets on the slopes. In fact, why not submit your own snaps and videos on from 14th September.

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 building, in our World Resorts Village. Mouth watering delights from countries such as France, Austria, Italy and Japan will be sure to satisfy even the finest of palates as well as holiday packages to suit every possible need – shop around for your perfect ski holiday and get the best deals out there.
If it’s a cold beer and a bar with a view you’re after, head to the stunning new roof terrace bar, where you can relax and unwind with views of the slopes and the Quarter Pipe below.

If after all of that, you’re still in search of an adrenalin hit, a visit to see the visually explosive international ice sculpting competition is a must! Plus there are husky dogs….phew! is that enough for you?
