Skievent 09 in Aarhus 

24. September 2009

Families with children are invited to the Skievent 09 in Aarhus
3rd of October

Families with children will be in focus when the Austrian Tourist Board and the Danish Skiing Union in co-operation with Visit Sweden, VisitNorway.dk and Stena Line invite for a dance in the snow on Saturday 3rd of October at Storetorv in Aarhus.

This is the 10th time that Sölden delivers glacial snow for the Danish start of winter - but it’s the first time that the organizers purposively focus on families with children. This year there will be a large children’s area including a ski carousel as well as ski play and the scene is set for a cheerful Skievent 09 in the Jutlandic capital on Saturday 3rd October from 10:00-18:00.

Even if the children are in focus the organizers have not forgotten the remaining Danish ski scene. An impressing Austrian ski slope provides a place in the footlights for the best Danish skiers. In addition the freestyle group Vitamin F will be present and make show for the guest of the Skievent. In the evening when the exhibitors will have packed up, the music will be turned on for a session for selected Danish freestylers and snowboarders.

Skievent behind quantum leap of Sölden

Since the first Skievent at Rådhuspladsen in 2000 Sölden has delivered and sponsored the snow. The digging out of snow, packing into refrigerated trucks, transportation to Denmark and snow work during the Skievent has for always been an invaluable support for the Danish organizers. But, as says Bo Schou Lauridsen, Manager of the Austrian Tourist Board in Denmark, “Sölden gets something for its money – when we started the first Skievent at Rådhuspladsen back in 2000 Sölden was 12th of the Austrian destinations in Denmark. Today Sölden has become one of the strongest Austrian brands in the minds of the Danish skiers.
