World Snow Day Johannesburg | 22 Janaury 2012
88 Event Participants
To most, the hosting of World Snow Day in Johannesburg in the middle of summer was a big surprise !

Sunday was a really hot summers day with temperatures reaching 32C and sadly for the organisers, followed by a massive thunderstorm in the afternoon that kept many of our loyal snow supporters at home.

The day however was a success with the artificial ski slope bustling with children tubing followed by a ski and snowboard demo and free skiing session for the rest of the afternoon. It was also a great chance for the small South African ski community to meet and discuss upcoming plans for the local winter season.

World Snow Day was also the perfect platform to launch the first local Junior Snowboard development program and we found that the concept stimulated discussion and was a great talking point.
