Ski and Snowboard Show 2018
Ski and Snowboard Festival 2018, Battersea Evolution.
Yesterday saw the launch of the Ski and Snowboard festival 2018. We paid a visit to Battersea to see what’s on. It was great to catch up with partners and see so many buzzing ski and snowboard fans at the event. It has changed quite a bit since my last visit and I was pleasantly surprised how much fun it was!
We were lucky with the weather and there was so much to see – some famous faces in Chemmy Alcott & Graham Bell with Billy Morgan (above) and pals doing tricks. Lots of activities to keep the kids entertained – dog sledding, ice skating, walk climbing, a ferris wheel and much much more! There was also a steady flow of fiz for apres for the big kids. High five to that!

We also met people doing very cool things in the ski industry. The Ellie Souter Foundation was amongst them. Following the tragic death of Team GB athlete Ellie Soutter on her 18th birthday, her family has committed to raising funds to support other youngsters in their winter sports journeys. Such a good cause. For more information see www.theelliesoutter.foundation.
