What a great response to our Ski Slick Limerick Competition! Your entries had us rolling in the aisles of CDHQ and it took us a little while to come to agreement over the winners. Thank you all for taking the time to indulge us and brighten up our day!
However unanimous decisions, with perhaps a little arm-twisting, have now been made and the winning limericks are published below. Well done to all the winners - you will be contacted by email to receive your tickets.
What's on at the Shows
Don't forget the Ski & Snowboard Show North opens tomorrow at EventCity, Manchester. There'll be appearances from top GB athletes including Jamie Nicholls, Katie Summerhayes and Rowan Cheshire. The Mountain Talks Theatre will give you invaluable information on off piste and backcountry skiing, Ellis Brigham will be offering free boot-fitting clinics, there's the chance to get a free virtual one-to-one lesson with Warren Smith, and there's so much more going on - live music, great food, free lift pass offers, pro-rider demos - phew!
The London Show takes place next week - 5th - 8th November, and promises to be the best Ski Show yet! The much-loved Aimee Fuller will be among The Team GB athletes in London, Santa will be flying in, Mount Battersea will be the venue for London Ride Freestyle Competition and for the first time the Altitude Comedy festival will be coming to the Show!
At both Shows there'll be plenty of opportunity to talk tips, resorts, equipment, apparel and see what's hot for this winter. So even if you're not a winner why not get along and get buzzed for the ski season ahead!
Without further ado and waffling here's our winning limericks - thank you all!
From Nikki Willard:
There was a keen skier called Joe,
At any chance to the slopes he would go,
And with Chalets Direct,
He could always connect,
To the best deals for fun in the snow!
From Rosie Dendle:
There was a young skier called Joe
Who loved to carve and slide on the snow
His life was perfect

Christmas holiday now booked – yo ho ho
From Steve & Lesley Jayne:
There was a keen skier called Joe
Whose aim was to go to the show
he composed a quick rhyme
which took little time
and Chalets Direct said no...........?
