- * An adult earlybird ticket is £15.
- * A family earlybird ticket (two adults and two children aged 11 to 16) is £30.
- * Children under-11 go free.

There are many activities as well as the usual product stands and ski resorts.
For example you can go “tubing”, which involves charging down the real snow slope in a rubber ring, something seen on nursery slopes around the Alps.
The usual ice rink will be there again and open to everyone.
Both activities are free.
There is also going to be a Kids’ Corner with magic shows, face painting and Halloween games.
A new event for 2016 will be a freestyle event involving University athletes.
The final of the Downtown Throwdown University Tour will be held on the Saturday, with the competing riders hosting rail jams throughout the weekend.
Once again some of the top GB pro-riders will be there to demonstrate their skills and best tricks on Mount Battersea, the 50ft outdoor kicker.
But this time there’ll be more seating, including undercover areas and some indoor cafés, to protect visitors from the elements.
Entertainment includes stand-up in the Altitude Comedy Festival tent, live music and late night weekend Apres parties.
