Once again, Battersea Power Station will be transformed into a ski resort hosting world class snowboarders from around the world. 2009 drew huge crowds to the South London site to witness the new and improved event site and enjoy what was the UK’s winter highlight. 2010 promises more of the same except with bigger names across the world’s of sport and music.
The 32m high kicker will sit next to the iconic towers of Battersea Power Station once again. 500 tonnes of real snow will be produced and packed onto the slope: the icing on the winter sports village cake. The big air jump will form the central hub of the competition returning as the biggest of its kind ever created in the UK. The overall length from the top of the jump to the landing strip will be 110m, with a 17m table top drop from which competitors from around the globe will be showcasing their talents.
The festival will kicks off on the Friday with a Battle of Britain snowboard contest. The best of British talent will battle it out for the title of top dog in the UK and last year’s winner Jamie Nicholls will return to defend their titles.
On Saturday the LG London Big Air event, part of the FIS LG Snowboard World Cup, takes centre stage: the main competition for snowboarders. All riders taking part can score crucial ratings points in their quest to become World Champions. Last year’s event winner and World Cup Champion, Stefan Gimpl (AUT) will be returning to defend his title.
Alongside the stellar line-up of winter sports action, there will be a world-class music bill across the weekend to entertain the après-ski revelers. The main music tent has been extended this year to hold a massive 15,000 capacity crowd.
