The excitement of SNO!zone comes to Hull with the city’s first ever REAL SNOW Street Session. On Thursday 22nd November Saville Street and Queen Victoria Square will host the most exhilarating event to hit the streets of cities around the UK.
Shoppers and workers will be inspired and entertained by some of the regions finest freestyle boarders and skiers, after 22 tonnes of real snow is dumped in the city centre for the rail jam after being transported from the indoor real snow slope inside Xscape, Castleford, just off the M62.
Damian Doyle, Slope and Freestyle Event Co-ordinator said:
“After the success of Street Sessions in Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh, we’re really looking forward to bringing snow to Hull and creating our biggest set-up yet. It’s great to be working in conjunction with local retailer ‘Board Patrol’ who are really keen to help put the sport in front of more people!
As one of the North’s premier Snow retailers ‘Board Patrol’ along with SNO!zone are hoping to get the people of Hull in the mood for a White Christmas with their snow dump the week following the Christmas light switch on.
With live DJs keeping the crowd informed and the top riders showing off the latest tricks on a specially set up slope and rail, it will be a night to remember.
“With the big screen as a backdrop, we’ll be seeing some amazing tricks from the UK’s best snowboarders and skiers on the rails. With the event starting at 5pm, we are hoping to catch workers on their way home, late night shoppers as well as the hard core boarders and skiers to show them what SNO!zone is all about!”
The crowds will have the chance to win some great prizes including FREE snow passes, lesson packages worth up to £200 and freestyle sessions to come and ride in the SNO!parks at SNO!zone Xscape, Castleford.
