Snowfix, Extreme Sports Channel’s hit
skiing and snowboarding podcast, has snowballed into a fully-fledged TV series.
Hosts Charlie, Jools, Tim, Nick and professional snowboarder Johno Verity present the latest news, reviews and interviews straight off the slopes in a free weekly podcast. At the height of the snow season in January, four half-hour shows have been commissioned for exclusive broadcast on the channel.
Sponsored by Nike ACG, Nike’s outdoor and snow brand, the highly addictive Snowfix deals the latest news on the snow scene, including weather conditions, event coverage, competitions, gear reviews and interviews with top riders. It will also feature Nike ACG Sweetspots; short films that uniquely showcase ski and snowboard athletes doing exactly what they love, where they love.
Now in its third series, Snowfix has gained a big following for its insider knowledge and the presenting team’s entertaining off-piste antics.
