Stephen Morgan, managing director of the Active Division at Raccoon Events, said: “The National Snow Show will be the must-attend event for snowsports enthusiasts in 2021. Jam packed with interactive features, the best brands, the biggest names and most importantly, providing an opportunity for the UK snowsport scene to come together in a safe way and prepare for the snow season ahead.
“The Show is not only a chance for seasoned skiers and snowboarders to plan for the upcoming season but will also provide an easy entry point for those curious about snowsports to learn the basics, chat to the experts and hear from incredibly motivating and inspiring speakers before hopefully deciding this is the sport for them.”Racco
