The BRITS, Europe’s longest established winter festival and number one event on the British Snowboarding calendar is back! Returning to the award-winning Swiss resort of Laax from the 21st – 28th March 2010.
The BRITS is a unique, week-long winter festival that everyone should experience including 4 British Snowboard Championship events: the Animal Slopestyle, SNO!zone Halfpipe, Trespass Snowboard and a musical juggernaut set to shake the pretty little Swiss resort to its very foundation.
This year we’re offering packages at rates that would make a backpacker double-take. Starting from as little as £230 per person, packages include – seven nights accommodation, seven days lift pass and an event pack containing an exclusive BRITS Ignite beanie and BRITS festival wristband, providing FREE entry to all of the club night shenanigans plus a bevy of discounts and event privileges. With its choice of hotels or apartments including the stylish Riders Palace and the brand new design hotel, Rocks Resort, the BRITS 2010 is offering champagne taste for beer money, and we’re bracing ourselves for an almighty lock-in.
As well as saving you a tidy packet, The BRITS also unites the UK’s top athletes such as X-Games Gold medallist, Jenny Jones and Olympic hopefuls Ben Kilner and Zoe Gillings with budding amateurs, kids and rookies. Giving all-comers the chance to compete for British titles and World-ranking points. All standards are welcome and competitors can pre-register online for any one or more disciplines.
For 2010 we’re adding even more to the Après Sessions, so hold tight for some Home Run adrenaline-fuelled antics, Air Bag bravado, Highest Ollie posturing, free Demo Testing, plus some banging Live Acoustic Sets. The evening music menu will be covering all bases, with melodic flavours coming courtesy of internationally acclaimed solo artists, live bands and DJs that cross a spectrum of musical genres and styles.
Previous artists to have graced The BRITS include exuberant Brit-hoppers The GO Team, US hip-hop legends Ugly Duckling, and cut ‘n’ paste maestro DJ Yoda to name a few. The music line-up set to tear the roof off The BRITS 2010 will be announced shortly.
