Wee Do- Respect the Mountain

With a chill in the air sweeping over London, we thought it an appropriate time to focus on an issue that winter sports enthusiasts should have a great interest in.

Our next Wee Do at the Carnaby Street store is next Tuesday, 17th November; and we have Betony Garner coming in to talk about the Ski Club of Great Britain campaign Respect the Mountain.

She is passionate about green issues and has been trying to raise awareness about how to minimise the impact of snowsports on the environment for the last four years.

respect the mountain

Respect the Mountain was a campaign launched by the Ski Club of Great Britain in 2004 with the aim of safeguarding the mountains for future generations to enjoy. Its basis is raising awareness and educating skiers, snowboarders, resorts and the whole snowsports industry on how they can do their bit to minimise their impact on the environment. The talk will investigate how the mountains have changed, how humans have impacted them and what we can do as skiers and snowboarders to help.

For more information about the campaign go to: www.respectthemountain.com

 If you would like a free ticket to this event, please email (carnabyst@howies.co.uk) or call us (0207 287 2345) to reserve a space. 

As always we have free organic beers and juice available.  Doors open at 7.15pm.  Spaces are limited so get in touch quickly.

 Hopefully see you there :)

Bring it on!

It's a beautiful sunny day, but Ben and I can't help but talk about this coming winter.  Firstly, because we're sorting out all our summer sale stock in store, and excited about the new collection coming up (of course!).  But the main reason is that we are pining for snow.  I'm considering getting up to the new snowdome at Hemel...for a little fix.  However nothing compares to the real thing obviously!  I'm mulling over where to go this winter, and dreaming of improving my skillls...hopefully this winter I can finally get over some stupid fears and charge it!

Anyway the new Absinthe snowboard movie trailer "Neverland" has been released; and maybe if your thoughts weren't drifting towards the snow, on a sunny day such as this...well now they will.
