THE BEST UK SPECIALIST RETAILER 2012
Last night saw the very first World Snow Awards ceremony held at Earls Court, London. The awards recognised excellence in the ski and snowboard industry and was a combined celebration of 25 years of the Ski & Snowboard magazine.
With 25 categories ranging from best ski to best European resort and everything in between, the winners would be chosen by a panel of leading ski and snowboard experts and public vote.
The ceremony kicked off at 7.30pm and was hosted by comedian and keen snowboarder Marcus Brigstocke. With 25 awards there was no time for tearful acceptance speeches (thankfully!) just a quick hand shake and photo and then whisked off the stage to bask in the glory of the achievement!
Ellis Brigham were in the running for Best UK Specialist Retailer and before we would find out whether we had been successful or not we watched as the Salomon X-Scream Series won best iconic ski, Ski Solutions win best specialist agent & Arc’teryx win best clothing manufacturer. The award for Best UK Specialist Retailer was up next, a bit of nail biting and then'....the winner is......‘Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports....!’
We are thrilled to receive the award and it’s down to our customers and the hardwork, enthusiasm and knowledge of our teams across our 24 stores and behind the scenes that we have been recognised for this award – a BIG thank you to everyone for voting for us!
