The Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Show is less than one week away!

If there is one event that really gets us excited for the season, it’s the Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Show. In part it’s the time of year it is held, but mostly it is the atmosphere at the event. For four days the nation’s capital becomes the epicentre of the snowsports world as professionals and punters alike descending on Battersea Power station for the event.

If you have not already purchased tickets for the show, then head to the Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Show website.

And of course, the Ski Club will have a major presence at the event, not only having a stand at the show but also by hosting a number of events throughout the four-day show…

Telegrah Ski and Snowboard

At the heart of all of the Ski Club’s activity is the stand. At stand number 509 you will find everything Ski Club related.

Freshtracks and Mountain Tracks teams will be at the stand to help you plan your next winter holiday as well as membership and communications staff to answer any general queries. It’s not just staff at the pitch though, look out for our photo booth and keep your eyes peeled for a little piece of treasure from our friends at Protect Our Winters UK.In addition to all of the fun and games, Ski Club has a competition open to all with one of our biggest ever prizes, in partnership with Ski Utah, Delta and Eider.

Membership packs are created on the day, but don’t worry - our current members aren’t left out. Existing members should head to the stand to pick up a complimentary goodie bag filled with treats from our partners, while stocks last.

Transceiver Training Sessions

Simply carrying a transceiver in the backcountry is not a get out of jail free card, knowing how to use this vital piece of kit is key. Companion rescue is the most successful method of avalanche rescue, so it is of paramount importance that you are comfortable with using your kit before heading away from the groomers.

Our in-house backcountry safety guru, Nigel Shepherd is on hand helping groups get to grips with using a transceiver. The free of charge sessions take place each day at the foot of Mount Battersea on real snow, slots at each session are strictly limited and sold out in a matter of days.

If you missed out on booking on to one of the sessions then there is still opportunity to learn from Nigel listed below…
