It’s that time of year again, time to go up into the loft, dust off the ski gear, and realise that you need new equipment for this year’s holiday. Summer is well behind us, there is a chill in the air, which gives you a great excuse to buy that bright orange £300 Salomon ski jacket that your other half is adamant you do not need.

the Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Show advert.


With this in mind, there is no better place to go than the Ski and Snowboard Show at Earls Court this weekend – open until the 3rd November. For your new equipment and gear, there are stands from all of the major ski shops (Ellis Brigham, Snow and Rock, TSA etc). For holidays, a number of the operators in Val d’Isère that we work with have stands, and their reps can let you know what chalets are still available for this season (note that we can always do special offers though).


We at made our way down for the opening day yesterday, and we fully recommend giving the show a visit. On top of looking at holiday and equipment deals, the food and drink stands are excellent, there are live ski demonstrations, and you can even enjoy a massage and some live après music.
