Melding old time with new school, the world's first indoor big-air contest will go off this fall at the London Olympia. This 150-year-old West End building's Victorian architecture includes a glass-topped dome that event director Marie Francis says is "really, really high." It'll need to be: The skiers and snowboarders coming in from around the world to compete for the £60,000 purse will be going really, really big. Organizers are carting in 150 tons of real snow for the event, part of the
Ski & Snowboard Show (October 27-November 5).
