Winter comes early this year with the introduction of a brand new snow sport and music event, Freesports on 4 FREEZE sponsored by LG.
From the 23-26th October, Battersea Power Station in London will be transformed into a real life ski resort featuring the biggest real snow jump ever made in the UK with a live music line up to match.
The Worldâ€™s best snowboarders and skiers will descend on the banks of the River Thames to take part in the highest profile snow and music festival ever seen in the UK. The focal point of the event is the 17m table top real snow jump created for the LG London Big Air Event, part of the LG FIS (International Ski Federation) World Cup, which will kick off the Northern Hemisphere Winter season in serious style. While this event is for snowboarders there will also be some amazing skiing action. The run down of events is as follows:
The International Freestyle Ski Event will once again feature the Worldâ€™s best skiers on your doorstep in London. The likes of Armada team riders Tanner Hall, multiple Winter X Games Gold Medal winner, and TJ Schiller will blow minds as they also compete for $25,000. Confirmed appearances include skiers such as Tanner, Jon Olsson and Jacob Wester. Three of the biggest names in skiing.
In a bid to give the UKâ€™s home grown talent an opportunity to challenge the Worlds best, FREEZE will hold the Battle of Britain (BOB) with the top performers gaining precious FIS points enabling them to compete in the main event, The LG London Big Air.
Freesports on 4 FREEZE sponsored by LG will also serve up the culmination of the LG FREEZE Air Bag Tour. In the month leading up to the event the tour will be hitting indoor and dry slopes across the UK, giving skiers and snowboarders the chance to get creative with their style whilst relying on a giant bag to catch them. The 14m x 8m LG FREEZE Air Bag will be open to the most innovative riders who have seasoned it during the tour in an invitational pro-am jam format.
Whilst the sports events are more than enough to keep you entertained there is so much more on offer at Freesports on 4 FREEZE sponsored by LG. After all the sports are completed attentions will turn to the giant 10,000 capacity Kayam tent hosting the best live music on offer in the UK. Music acts are to be announced but expect household names rocking out the best in contemporary music.
Elsewhere on the music front there will be genuine aprÃ¨s ski bars bringing the real feel of the mountains to England rather than the English going to the Alps. Weâ€™re talking about conga lines, stein beers, vin chaud all to the sounds of genuine Alpine party DJâ€™s brought in from the top resorts of Europe. Think Morris bar in Val dâ€™Isere, Ice Bar in Mayrhofen, Krazy Kangaroo in St Anton and thatâ€™s what weâ€™re talking about.
Relentless Energy Drink will also be there creating their own style of mountain party serving big beats and their own range of cocktails in their aptly named Blizzard Bar.
Other attractions will include a genuine ski village with shops lining the main resort â€˜high streetâ€™ where youâ€™ll be able to pick up bargains from last year and check out the latest kit about to hit the slopes. With all this going on there is absolutely no reason to miss out on the only pre season event in the UK.
