Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

 Welcome to snowHeads 
If you're here, you probably like snow snowHead Planning your first ski holiday or maybe u spend all Summer planning ski holidays or are you just trying to sniff out an extra little bargain ski-trip? Wink The 10's of thousands of members of snowHeads, between them, must have skied and snowboarded just about everywhere. We are absolute beginners, instructors and even ex-olympians: every snowHead has a question and everyone has an answer for someone.

From solo skiers short of a ski buddy to organisers of ski-parties of all sizes. From "What's the best ski insurance package?" to "Where's the best powder?" and from "How I survived the snowtrain" to "Ryanair ate my hamster", whether you ski, snowboard, blade or just build snowmen (just?!), someone at snowHeads knows something that can help you and you're bound to know something that can help someone else too.

Now, although there's lots to read as a guest, the only way to get the best from snowHeads is to register and login. This lets you view more of the forums, see who's taking part in discussions and post your own comments.
Basically, it opens snowHeads up to you, turning 'that skiing web site' into snowHeads the Ski Club Cool NehNeh Little Angel Toofy Grin Laughing

SCGB Suspends Repping Service in France
Ski Club of Great Britain has announced today that its rep service will not run in France next Winter. French authorities have declared illegal the on-snow leading for profit of groups by anyone other than a qualified ski instructor. The SCGB was hoping to get around the issue on the grounds that their reps are technically unpaid volunteers but legal advice has now persuaded them otherwise.
One of their reps was stopped and questioned by gendarmes near the end of last season and is due to appear oin court in Albertville in September.

RIP to a much loved snowHead
Many of you are aware of Spydermanís incredible courage and optimism in the face of serious illness over the last few months.

Sadly, as DCers now know, he lost his hard-fought battle earlier today.

He was hugely loved and admired by many on this forum: for his unfailing generosity and kindness; his enthusiasm for and encyclopaedic knowledge of all manner of things from skiing, to cheese, to music, to Landies, to carpets, to photography, to diving, and to heaven knows what else; for his twinkly sense of fun; and, last but not least, for his adored wife Kitty, good friend to many of us as well.

RIP, dear Spyderman, and most loving thoughts and condolences to his family, especially Kitty, Boywonder, LC and Jill and not forgetting Ruby.

We will miss you so much.

Katherine, Stewart, Helen and all who knew and loved you, Brett. ... :: Read more

Highland cows used to 'avalanche proof' ski slopes
Ski engineer Michael Manhart has introduced a herd of Highland cattle to his ski slopes in Lech, Austria, but not just to eat the grass. He claims it helps to create an avalanche-safe environment and also cuts the costs of preparing the slopes. As well as eating shrubs that could get in the way of skiers, the cattle'sí hoof prints churn the ground, creating an irregular surface that is the perfect way to bind the snow to the ground to prevent avalanches ... :: Read more
