Snowpod Ltd kicks off the 09/10 winter season with a shiny new award for best interior design at the Cardiff Design Festival last week.

Rider-owned and run and launched last season in Tignes France, Snowpod is designed by the in-house team with the brief to make it strictly fun, edgy, irreverent and 'on it'. More 'street boutique' in style than 'Heidi hide-away' Snowpod features graffiti art, rubber, stainless steel, shag pile, salvaged finds and cheeky details... giving nostalgia and tradition a miss and offering something different to its guests!

With comfort and chill out paramount but only part of the plan, the idea behind Snowpod is that each one is put together to be unique and quirky and offer a showcase for and a backdrop to, up and coming talent from the arts, media, music, design and snow sport worlds.


The Snowpod #1 package starts at £299 pppw for dinner, bed and breakfast and with a game plan that includes mountain hosting to show its guests around the Espace Killy, and with the usual 'toys' Xbox 360, flat screen TV and book, film and music library - providing fun and chillout beyond the vertical! An additional serviced package that offers transfers, equipment hire with in-house delivery and fitting, organised snow trips and in-house massage and pampering treats is also available.

For further details check out snow-pod.com and for availability, prices and to book a stay with Snowpod in Tignes, email yvonne@snow-pod.com


Designed to be 'event-ful' rather than the usual run of the mill bargain bucket holidays, COLab Events kicks off pre-season with 'Ride and Tested' on-snow equipment testing with top brands including Burton, DC and Dragon. Followed with BoardB*tch gals-only snow week and by its Pro-Am snow sessions throughout the season.

Watch this space for further information on these events as well as its high altitude golfing breaks and corporate hospitality packages.

Rider-owned and run and introducing some exciting collaborations, COLab Events is set up by the guys behind Snowpod in Tignes... and these guys know a thing or two about being into snow, riding and sliding and into good times!
