Christian O’Connell, award winning DJ at Absolute Radio, the ‘voice that gets millions of people out of bed every morning’, will be broadcasting his breakfast show live, on location, from the Swiss ski slopes on December 6 and 9. He and his team will be joined by five listeners and their partners who have won a ski holiday organised by Switzerland Tourism and Crystal Ski Holidays.
Pre-promotions will begin on November 25 followed by a weeklong breakfast show promotion with the competition starting on Monday December 2. Listeners will be directed to a dedicated Switzerland Tourism and Crystal Ski Holidays page on absoluteradio.co.uk where they can pre-register for the competition. Christian will then bring two applicants to air each day, starting December 2, to win one of five ski holiday prizes.
All flights, first class rail transfers, accommodation, breakfast and evening meals, lift passes and skiing equipment rentals are included. Other activities will also be organised, but will need to be secret to surprise the winners. All winners will then take part on the show from the slopes on Monday December 9.
Director of Switzerland Tourism Marcelline Kuonen said: “We are proud and pleased that Switzerland will be the host of Absolute Radio’s first Alpine broadcast. It gives us a unique chance to showcase the Swiss winter in all its glory and introduce the listeners to one of Switzerland’s most spectacular ski resorts that is Saas Fee.”
There will be a further chance to win a ski trip with Crystal Ski during the breakfast show on Monday December 9. One lucky winner and partner will be jetting off to the four-star Hotel Falken in the top Swiss resort of Wengen. Prize includes flights, transfers, a week’s half board and two six day lift-passes.
