Mr. Motivator's Daily Warm-down
Surely the most famous Jamaican to ever wear lycra (yep, we're looking at you Usain) Motivator is another dab hand at Snowbombing and is a beloved fixture of the festival.
Each year we seek to draw out the most courageous Snowbombers and pit them against each-other in one unholy battle of blood, sweat and ego's. It never fails to become a fascinating spectacle that always proves über entertaining to watch.
Buckle up your ski boots and get ready to warble your way up the Penken to a selection of Snowbombing singalong classics... I'm loving angels instead...
