Had a great time chatting to Tim on the @skirexmedia podcast. All about the upcoming National Snow Show, ski season and fun on the slopes.
Listen 🎧 at this link. It’s a great podcast and it’s fun to follow Tim and his ski experiences.
This was the second time of talking to Tim for the Ski Rex Media podcast, we first spoke in November 2021. When we looked at Dan Egan’s book 30 years In a White Haze and chatted about Ski A to Z.
We talked about the National Snow Show and that I will be signing Ski A to Z books there and will be selling high quality art prints at my stand D76.
Just a reminder that prints are available for Pre-Order (to avoid disappointment and potential shipping charges when we run out of stock at the event.) See my Shop to Pre-Order (last few days to do this are now!)
I’m looking forward to speaking at the National Snow Show on 15th and 16th October at Birmingham NEC, UK. Come along on Sunday 16th when I’ll be sharing ski tips and advice. Tim Meyer will be at Boston Expo in November.
I also talk about how I will be donating some Ski A to Z book sales proceeds from each day of the show to Snow Camp charity to help youngsters, who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity, to try the sport.
The National Snow Show is at Birmingham NEC on October 15th/16th 2022. More information here. I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone at the show!
Ski A to Z is published by Meyer & Meyer Sport, more information about the book is here.
Thank you so much Tim, great to talk, and connect for the podcast. It was fun to do the recording and I’ve enjoyed listening again.
This Boot Is Made For… art prints and greeting cards are now available at Renishaw Hall in Derbyshire. Inspired by the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire this artwork is a conceptual illustration using a walking boot as the landscape. #renishaw #art #peakdistrict
I’ll be at Ski Rossendale at The Hill to join the 50 year celebrations on 10th June 2023. I will be signing first editions of Ski A to Z, have art prints, greeting cards and some exciting new products.
Great news! My fabric designs are now available on Polartec® fleece! I have 30+ ski and snowsports themed designs to choose from in my growing Spoonflower shop. These can be printed on demand and shipped direct to you. #ski #snowsport #fabricdesign
Ski A to Z is an illustrated introduction to skiing. Information and links to buy Ski A to Z are here.
I have done numerous radio interviews in my work in past, in travel PR, so it’s nice to now talk about my own products and work. I appreciate the support from BBC Radio Lancashire, it’s lovely station that has made a huge difference to the community through the times restricted by Covid-19.
Please like and share with friends and colleagues who may be interested in skiing.
It was wonderful to take ‘Ski A to Z‘ to where my ski story began at Ski Rossendale, in Lancashire for a book signing event on Saturday.
At a book signing event on Saturday it was great to meet skiers and youngsters starting their own ski journeys. Thank you to everyone who came along to the book signing and to all the team at Ski Rossendale.
I hope everyone enjoys the books, and the bookmarks and ‘colour in’ check ‘lists’ created for the event. Thanks to Killaprint for printing them.
This is the press release that was issued about the book signing…
Ski Book Author/ Illustrator Brings Ski Book Home for Signing
The author and illustrator of new ski book Ski A to Z will be returning to her ski roots to sign books at Ski Rossendale.
Kimberley Kay, debut author and illustrator of Ski A to Z will be signing books at Ski Rossendale, the artificial ski slope where her skiing career began, on Saturday 9th April between 9 am and 12 noon.
Kimberley spent much of her childhood and teenage years skiing and working at Ski Rossendale. Ski Rossendale is now part of the The Hill outdoor entertainment venue.
Kimberley said, “I’m excited to be going back to my ski roots to sign books where it all started. Having skied, raced and worked at Ski Rossendale it will be great to be there with the book to chat about skiing. It is a chance for people to buy a signed copy of Ski A to Z, or to bring their copy of the book along for signing.”
New book Ski A to Z is a practical, fully illustrated introduction to Alpine skiing, intended to answer all the questions new skiers may have and to help prepare them for mountain experiences.
Dave Fuller, manager of Ski Rossendale, said, “Many new people are introduced to skiing through artificial ski slopes such as Ski Rossendale. Kim’s book Ski A to Z complements the instruction we offer at Ski Rossendale, through group and private lessons, so we are delighted that Kim has created this book that can help people with the information they need to get into the sport. The book’s story started here and is now helping skiers across the globe.”
Published by Europe’s leading sports publisher, Meyer & Meyer Sport, Ski A to Z provides information, tips and insights to help novice skiers of all ages grasp the sport. The accompanying illustrations are intended to resonate with avid skiers as well as new, demonstrating the exhilaration and joy of skiing.
Kimberley Kay said, “Ski A to Z is helping to make the sport increasingly accessible to a more diverse audience by helping people to feel that they have adequate information to give skiing a try. Many people may be put off beginning the sport as they simply haven’t a clue where to start, what questions to ask – or even the confidence to ask those questions. Ski A to Z removes that barrier, giving all new skiers access to the information they need to venture into the sport and opens the door to experiencing the wonder of skiing.”
Since starting skiing aged five Kimberley has over forty years of ski experience including racing, teaching, and heli-skiing, as well as ski holiday promotion during a 20 year career in travel PR, which included running the press offices for Going Places and TUI UK.
In full colour hardback format and ebook, Ski A to Z is available to buy now on all online book retailers and through bookshops. More information about the book can be found at www.skiatoz.com
The author is available for interview, comment, and has broadcast experience. Review copies, book extracts and some editorial illustrations can be provided.
