London’s Battersea Power Station may seem like an odd place for a 32 metre high snowboard jump made up of 500 tonnes of real snow, but that’s what you’ll find there on the 28th and 29th of October when this disused icon becomes a snow sports-music arena.
Battersea Power Station is hosting the London leg of the Snowboard World Cup but there’s much more! The competition is just part of the Relentless Freeze Festival where the world’s best snowboarders and skiers compete on a 100m-long real snow jump, alongside some amazing music acts. This year The Streets and Groove Armada are on the bill, set to perform in this amazing ‘après-ski party'.
Tickets can be purchased on line at relentlessfreeze.com with a choice of a money saving adult season ticket which covers the two days and (children’s tickets also available) or an individual day ticket.
So for those looking for some fun close to home, buy your tickets and practise looking cool in your chic bobble hat. You’ll be able to watch the experts flip and fly, then chill out listening to some funky music.
And if you have any money left over, be sure to visit the Freeze Retail Village, where you can kit yourself out with all the gear. Pro Snowboard and ski shops such as The Snowboard Asylum, Sputnik Snowboard Store, Freeze Pro Shop, Decked Out and LCB London will all be offering good deals to Freeze customers.
