PlanetSKI was amoung the crowd.

From across the Pond is the Ikon Pass and Jackson Hole.

Norway – Home of Skiing is exhibiting for the first time.

“We have decided to participate in this year’s ski show at the Birmingham NEC, primarily as the London show was cancelled and to trial a show outside the traditional catchment area of Norway customers,” said the CEO of Norway – Home of Skiing, Trevor de Villiers.

” From feedback, I have heard very positive sentiments relating to last year’s show in Birmingham, so am really looking forward to this show and view it’s as a “test” to see if we expand our presence even further in future years.

“Please come and say hello to us on Stand No 62, for a taste of Norway.”

“The Après side of snowsports is as appealing and important as the time spent participating in the sport we love,” said Stephen Morgan, MD at Raccoon Active Events that runs the National Snow Show.

“It brings us together, helps us celebrate a sport and lifestyle we love and builds community and participation.

“The Après Pavilion will be a place to kick back, to enjoy some good music, meet with friends and transport yourself back to the mountains with a drink in hand and some good old mountain grub.

“Whether you are visiting the show with friends, as a family or as a solo traveller, pop into the Après Pavilion and soak up the vibes.”
