September 25, 2012, 7:22 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Metro Snow Ski and Snowboard Show returns to Earl's Court from 31 October to 4 November. The largest dedicated skiing and snowboarding show is the best place to kick start the winter season with bargain ski trips up for grabs, discounted gear and clothing on sale, tips and advice from the experts readily available, loads of destination information and of course an amazing display of speed, skill and aerial acrobatics from professional skiers and snowboarders.
Although focusing on skiing and snowboarding, The Ski and Snowboard Show also highlights other winter-wonderland snow-based activities such as husky sledding, ice skating, curling and Nordic skiing. Tickets are reasonably priced at £10-£14 for adults with children under 16 entering free. More information can be found on LondonTown.com or the event's website skiandsnowboard.co.uk.
For those wanting to enjoy a few days ‘on the snow' exploring every corner of The Ski and Snowboard Show, LondonTown.com points out that it makes sense to book a stay in one of the London hotels in the area. To make life easier – i.e. cheaper – it has reduced rates at a selection of London hotels including the three-star K&K Hotel George and the budget two-star Garden View Hotel London. Discounts are as much as 56% on the regular rate making the capital a much more affordable city indeed.
The K&K Hotel George is a mid-range period property in Kensington, just five minutes from Earl's Court. There is a cute garden, fitness centre and lounge and an impressive buffet breakfast is available. Room rates now start at £151 per night.
The Garden View Hotel London is located just across the road from Earl's Court. The hotel is basic but the staff is friendly and helpful and it offers good value for money for the area. Room rates now start at £71 per night.
