You could do worse than head to the main Ellis Brigham store at Covent Garden in London this week. Why? NEW

There are talks from the ski instructor to the stars, Warren Smith, and the off piste guide, Henry Schniewind. 

Olympic athletes are in town for a Q&A. 

Then there's the small matter of live music and après ski refreshments. 

And of course seeing all the tempting new gear on offer for next season.

On Tuesday the para-olympic skier, Millie Knight, and Peter Speight from the GB Park & Pipe sqaud kicked off proceedings.

Millie is a good friend of ours at PlanetSKI and we have enjoyed her talks in the past. 

See here for an earlier report when we saw her speak at the Crystal Ski HQ in London on June 3rd:
She didn't disappoint this time.

And Henry Schneiwind is back on Thursday 26th talking about the pleasures, and dangers, of off piste skiing.  

We have been in the past and they are thoroughly recommended:
Singer songwriter Tom Speight is performing at the event following a successful summer - he had two songs playlisted on BBC Radio 2.  

Tom has enjoyed 14 million Spotify streams, and has previously supported Bastille, London Grammar and Tom Odell.       

Tom Forest also popped by following the release of his second release 'Believer', from his upcoming debut album Hope, to play a live acoustic set - the inaugural Snowfest Session.
