CITY shoppers can head to the slopes next weekend as the Old George Mall plays host to the Salisbury Slalom with a snowboarding challenge.

On November 25 city centre visitors will have the chance to go head to head in the mall’s very own skiing-themed event to win prizes and get their name on the leader board.

Manager at Old George Mall Jon Osgood said: “It is going to be a fantastic day of snowboarding fun next weekend and we’re expecting a flurry of people.

“This summer, we hosted a tennis serve challenge to celebrate Wimbledon and it was a huge success with hundreds of people taking part, so to get everybody ready for winter we thought ski slope fun with Salisbury Slalom would be perfect.

“There are some great prizes to give away to those who are successful in achieving the longest snowboard slalom, including everything from a £50 Accessorise vouchers to a family bundles to see Jack and the Beanstalk at Salisbury Playhouse."

The event will run from 11am-4pm. To claim a turn on the slope shoppers will have to spend £30 in any Old George Mall store or restaurant and take their receipt to the snow cube.
