Glasgow to host FIS World Cup Event
Although not 100% definite and subject to final confirmation, it is probable that Glasgow will host the UKs first ever FIS World Cup event this October.

The 2004/05 Nokia FIS World Snowboard Cup is in talks to hold its first event of the season at the Glasgow Science Park on the banks of the River Clyde.

Three miles of scaffold will support more than 200 tons of real snow to create a 32m high take-off and 100m long slope, making it the UKs biggest temporary real snow slope.

Following the 09 October event, the World Cup will then move on through 15 countries, pulling in 10,000 spectators.

The event would be a considerable coup and a great boost for the profile of British snowsports.

A key factor in drawing the event to Scotland has been the consistent success of Scottish athlete Lesley McKenna, who last year won two World Cup half-pipe events and finished 3rd overall.
