Countdown to the Ski and Snowboard Show
You know the skiing season’s almost here when it’s time for London’s Ski and Snowboard Show at Earls Court, starting on Wednesday 19 October.
Whet your appetite for the white stuff by checking out the latest skis, boards and boots, or bargain-hunt for exclusive holiday deals in the WorldResortsVillage. Be sure to read FamilySkiNews Planning and Tips before you book.
There’s plenty of family fun at the show too. Kids will enjoy watching the competitions on the big kicker – especially the Big Air competition – while parents enjoy a vin chaud or two.
There are lots of prizes and gear to win, and even a chance to try ringoing – something the editor of FamilySkiNews experienced with her 9 year-old son this summer at Southampton Alpine Centre. You can read their account at Ringoing.
For teenagers looking towards ‘working the season’ in their gap year, there’s even a Job Fair on Saturday 22 October.
The show takes place in London’s Earls Court exhibition centre from Wednesday 19 – Sunday 23 October and costs £10/14 (weekdays/weekends) for adults; £4/6 for children 11-16 years. Under 11s go free. Opening hours are as follows:

Thursday 20 October: 11am-10pm
Friday 21 October: 11am-10pm
Saturday 22 October: 10am-7pm
