As summer draws to a close attentions are drawn to the snowy mountains with the Interactive Fulham Ski Fête
Come one, come all! Interactive Resorts is proud to present our Fulham Ski Fête, taking place on the 29th September.
September is upon us and with it brings the end of what has been a record breaking summer; a summer that put our pale British complexions to the test and had our population believing that things were looking up for our mercurial climes.
It is amazing how quickly an excited British population spurred on by blue skies and sun can descend into depression at the first sight of the grey clouds and perpetual precipitation that our autumn months will inevitably bring.
This time of year is agony for the vast majority of Brits, with just one exception. This is the time for skiers and snowboarders from all four corners of our island to unite and rejoice in the knowledge that the more rain we have the more snow we can enjoy when we head up the mountains.
Lest we forget the British weather’s record breaking summer was made a laughing stock by the records set by the vast majority of resorts in the Alps and most other mountain ranges across Europe for that matter. Avoriaz saw 11.7 metres of snow at 1800m while Cauterets in the Pyrenees welcomed a whopping 16 metres of snow to their resort by the end of the season. The incredible thing is that meteorologists are expecting even more snow this winter!
To celebrate the fact that we can finally start thinking about carving, powder, dumps and bluebird skies again without having our mental stability questioned we have decided it is time for the first Interactive Fulham Ski Fête.
On the 29th of September hundreds of skiers and boarders will make their descent upon Fulham Palace to spend the day waist deep in Alpine revelry, enjoying such mountainous treats as:
- Live music from après ski favourites Mullet!
- The Nostalgia steel drum group
- Bavarian Oompah band
- Savoyard food stalls – Tartiflette, raclette and the French cheese specialists
- World record bobble hat wearing attempt
- Afternoon tea
- Charity raffle
- Children’s acivities – Snowconut shy, Beat the snowman goalie, Punch & Judy and more
But why Fulham I hear you ask?
Well, of the estimated 1 million Brits that head to the snowy peaks for their holiday each year around 20,000 live in South West London, accounting for around a third of London’s ski holiday makers!
