World Snow Day
NEVIS is planning a day of activities on World Snow Day - Sunday 20 January 2013. This is part of world celebrations, the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS) is working with snowsports bodies across the globe to raise the profile of all things snow. The festival is all about encouraging children and their families to enjoy, explore and experience snow and introduce newcomers to the opportunities available in their own country, for outdoor activities on snow.
World Snow Wear
We're not quite sure what World Snow Wear actually is ... but if you can find some, wear it on World Snow Day. There's a free mug of our delicious hot chocolate from the Snowgoose restaurant for the winners of this competition. Judging will take place outside the Snowgoose restaurant at 2pm. Snow and wind dependent.
Taster 'Learn to Ski' + 'Learn to Board' Sessions - ONLY for complete Beginners
Have you never ever skied before? Then sign up to one of our Taster Sessions including a 1/2 day lift pass, equipment hire (skis, boots & poles) and a 2 hour introductory group lesson. We are offering the first 10 skiers and first 10 boarders who sign, this package for free. The sessions will take place from 10am to 12 midday and you will need to arrive at about 8.30am to give yourself enough time to organise your equipment. Booking in advance is advised as the numbers are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please know your height, weight and shoe size when you call to book. Call Snowsports School on 01397 705825 to book your place. Snow and wind dependent.
The newly built Transceiver Park at Nevis Range will be open all day for practicing search and rescue scenarios with your transceiver, shovels and probes, which can now also be hired on site in Equipment Hire at the base station. Full information and instruction on how to use the Park is available on site. If you need assistance then you may be able to call for a member of Ski Patrol to provide further information. The Park is free to use, but a lift pass is required to access the hill. Snow and wind dependent.
Apres Ski Pre World Snow Day
World Snow Day wouldn't be complete without the new Pinemarten cafe bar staying open late (the night before) to help us celebrate with music and a selection of 'Scottish' fayre and a wee dram! Snow and wind dependent.
