Pomona, CA – More than 15,000 ski and snowboard enthusiasts are expected to attend the first annual North Pole Snow Show at Fairplex on December 9-11, 2005. With each paid $20 adult admission (13 years old+), ticket holders will receive $75 worth of vouchers for lift tickets to Mt. Baldy and Snow Valley Ski Resorts.
The three-day snow themed show will be filled with entertainment, games, contests, motor-cross demonstrations, radio personalities appearances, food and drink, ski resort booths, ski and snowboard vendors and an extensive gear swap. More than 40 vendors will display and sell the latest ski and snowboard equipment and apparel in a family-friendly environment.
“The North Pole Snow Show is designed to tantalize the senses of the ski and snowboard lover of any age,” said James LaFave, President of Life Entertainment, Inc. and Show Producer. “We have combined the most popular elements of some of the best snow events on the West Coast from the past 20 years to create an entertaining and fun atmosphere for our guests. Besides, where else can you triple your admission value in ski lift tickets!”
Among the festivities attendees will enjoy throughout the weekend is the “Santa Motor-cross Show,” where Santa, his elves and Rudolf will entertain the crowd with an exciting motorcycle chase show. On a second stage, children ages 6 to 18, and adults alike, can sing Karaoke style to pop songs and holiday classics for a chance to win snowboard and ski prizes.
At other locations inside the venue, attendees will be memorized by the “Gingerbread Land,” a miniature winter wonderland composed of elaborate gingerbread houses. To liven up the Christmas spirit, guests can pick their own holiday sweets at the “Candy Cane Forrest.”
For those anxious to partake in another holiday treat, visitors can pose for a photo with “Santa’s Dears,” a festively clad group of North Pole beauties. Children of all ages will be entertained for hours at the “Yukon Cornelius Rock Climbing Wall,” “Dancer’s Basketball Toss” and “Prancer’s Putting Green.”
Bargain shoppers will appreciate “Santa’s Warehouse,” a gear swap and sale area where vendors will sell new and used snowboard and ski equipment along with attendees who wish to sell their used equipment on consignment (Equipment needs to be dropped off by December 7th and accompanied by a consignment form. Parties interested need to visit the North Pole Snow Show web site for details and submission form.).
