Glen Coe is the most iconic ski and snowsport destination in the UK, so there’s nowhere better to host the UK’s first-ever mountain-based ski and snowboard festival.
The festival and expo is being held on the weekend of March 26-27 and is an opportunity for all to celebrate a love of sliding and the mountains, a chance to try new kit and see next year’s equipment months before it’s in the shops.
You can join a group for a backcountry adventure, take your first steps into the world of ski/splitboard touring, get some tips on your piste technique or learn how avalanche safety kit works. Or you can just enjoy the mountains, the snow, the atmosphere and a beer with your mates.
The Mighty Coe is also supporting the work of Protect Our Winters. Climate change is going to change how we all live, and there’s never been more reason to make the most of our home snow and our home mountain experiences.
At the heart of the festival – The Mighty Coe festival village. Check out the top brands’ kit, chill with great tunes, fuel up on awesome food and drink, demo some new gear, start your course, build a snowman with your kids… or grab a beer with your mates.
The festival and expo village is up on the plateau, at the base of the lifts and right next to the pistes and skin track. The festival vibes will be flowing all weekend – entry is included with your Mighty Coe lift pass.
See the best new kit in its natural environment. The UK’s first on-snow ski and board expo.
Check out the best kit from some of the snowsport industry’s best brands. Some brands are bringing samples of 2022-23’s gear – this is an exclusive chance to see next year’s equipment in the flesh, and months before anyone else. Brand experts will be here all weekend to discuss all the geeky details. Perfect!
Salomon have led the way in developing some of the best products available today for snow sports and backcountry access. As The Mighty Coe’s official partner, this will be a chance to see and learn about what they do and why they do it – direct from the brand experts.
Ellis Brigham have been supporting the UK snowsports scene for literally decades. We’re delighted they’re the festival’s official retail partner – look out for their stands and maybe even a few festival or end of season special offers.
