  • Description

    The London public has a chance to see some of the world's top skiiers in action on an artificial ski slope this week.

    SYNOPSIS: The skiiers were performing at the fourth International Ski Show which is being held at the Olympia exhibition centre. Among those displaying their talents were members of the Austrian ski team, who took part in a series of ski - bobbing races on an artificial slope.

    The British Alpine Ski Team will also be performing at the show which runs until next Sunday (31 October). The artificial slope being used covers an area of nearly 8,000 square feet (700 square metres) and descends from a height of about 35 feet (11 metres) to ground level. As well as the demonstrations, there are also a number of exhibitions by manufacturers of skiing equipment.

    The main feature of the show is the appearance of the K2 Freestyle Ski Team. Team manager, Jim Stelling, demonstrates one of the tricks that has made him a leading professional freestyle skier. Teammate Scott Cowan performs a somersault jump, one of many in the K2's range.

    Star of the show is world freestyle champion, Wayne Wong.
