  • Description

    The Second International Ski Show -- exhibiting some of the latest ski equipment and clothing -- opened in London on Wednesday (27 November) for five days.

    Many wintersports firms and clubs took part in the show, which the organisers claimed would be particularly useful to people who never had a ski-ing holiday.

    Highlights of the show included demonstrations of trick ski-ing and technique by well-known experts such as Austria's Ernst Spiess, Head of Racing for the Olympic Winter Games at Innsbruck in 1976.

    Among the latest equipment on display were a simulated ski slope and a "Mogulslope". This is driven electrically with two endless belts which can move at variable speeds. And its ski-ing deck can be set at different angles and fitted with automatic safety devices. Its manufacturer says it is built for skiers to simulate speed and steepness to suit their own experience and needs, and its provided as part of an instant indoor ski school at a cost of GBP 3700 sterling ($ US 9700 dollars).

    A new range of ski clothing complete with ski boots and hats for the "total look" in coordinates -- from France, the United States and Austria -- was also on display to add colour to the show.
