@dp, you just need to put more weight on. You can do it with a pole if you time it right. (My instructor for our first ski week was a bit of a erm...prankster.) They usually just step out of them and get flustered but if they pole along to the lift the skis fall off as their feet leave the ground.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

So after waiting for what seemed an eternity in one of the queues some Russain barged in a few places ahead, the red mist came down and I reached forward grabbed him by the hood and give it a hard pull and throw him on the floor to the side.... Girl fight...Did you pull his hair as well. Top tip for dealing with queue jumpers. Release their skis as quietly and gently as you can. If you get it right they wont realise until they are on the lift :-D :-D

So what do you do? I race cars. Really? A mate of mine races cars in australia too. Saloon cars. Won a couple this year actually. So what do you race? F1. F1? Oh poo-poo you're Mark Webber! Not ski related but years ago I was at the RAC rally. Bumped into two blokes in the pub and got chatting. The had foreign accents and were obvious petrol heads. After a while Colin McCrea came in, walked over to the table and started chatting. I nearly pooped on my seat. After a while I found out I was drinking with Tommi Makinen and Carlos Sainz. I knew they looked vaguely familiar. Chris de Burgh (Lady in Red) hit me with a golf ball once. He apologised profusely and paid for lunch in the golf club afterwards. I insisted there were no hard feeling and gave him the 30 quid back. After he left the barman asked me how I knew Chris de Burgh so well that I would lend him money. Who???? :-D :-D :-D

Are F1 hotels the ones where you share bathroom/toilet facilites? We've used them a lot for crash pads. The facilities are shared but they are generally spotlessly clean. They are also extremely inexpensive but you only ever get three to a room. We used to book two rooms when the kids were small......best deal I ever got was 18 euro for two rooms...probably not be that cheap now TBF.

Did you ask your son why he went for deep snow while being tired? He was tired. Didn't focus on the lesson. Didn't listen to the instructor. Transitioning to a new environment. Didn't do as he was told......instructor's fault obviously. :roll:

It's my impression, though derived entirely anecdotally, that ESF instructors are far more prone than independents to treat public pistes as their own personal territory. Meh - me too. ESF school - 25 kid snake blocking the entire piste. Any other school....25 kid snake blocking half the piste. Sharing is caring.

McNett Tenacious tape is excellent. I've used it to fix tents, boats, coats and bicycle punctures. It looks kinda flimsy but it does the job.If you can get a small patch on the inside and a bigger one on the outside it should be good for years.

Do your own science. Wax one ski and leave the other one dry. Count the times you fall over when one ski stops and the other one doesn't.

@RobWa, both from skiing and through work I would say something around -15 is the limit for exposed flesh. Have skied in the states in -25 when exposed flesh would become painful after a few minutes and the guides would be pulling people for having their eyeballs out. I do occasional maintenance work for a large fast food chain. Walk in freezer can't get above -18 and if you are in there for 5 minutes your face stops working. 10 minutes and everything is hurting. You only make that mistake once.

Your feet cant change by half a size. That isn't how feet work. You would need exceptionally fat feet and a distinct lack of bones for that to be remotely true. Your boots don't fit.

@Thornyhill, don't you ever sleep? Naw - Its a waste of time. @gryphea, I doesn't take an investigation to work out what might happen in a given set of circumstances on a particular bend or jump. What is really needed is a huge amount of funding. F1 is very safe. Tracks cost tens or hundreds of millions to build and make safe. That is OK in a multi billion dollar industry but it isn't going to happen for ski training, racing or road racing as there isn't the funding to support it. FIS agreed to spend 250k over 5 years to improve safety after Nik Z's death.

@gryphea, Racing anything isn't really like construction. If you want to race and want to win you are putting yourself up against the boundaries of physics. You have to push that little bit more and you have to accept the it could be painful or fatal. That doesn't apply to going about your daily job in construction. It should be safe. (I used to race motorbikes....I know a lot of dead people. In the hours leading up to the start it is in the back of your mind that this could be your last race and last day but once the flag drops there is nothing on your mind other than the next turn. I guess any investigation would conclude that anyone who is prepared to die in a race or training is bonkers.)

My pass got frazzled last year because I kept it in a small wallet with emergency (beer) money and as I went through the turnstile it was destroyed by the metal strips in the notes..... That's what the explanation in the lift pass office was anyway! I would love to hear the science behind that explanation. Gazzza The neon will reflect RF traffic and open a different turnstile. Nah - seriously...never had an issue with pass in upper arm pocket. The odd time you have to dip your shoulder a bit but as above...no biggie

The guy is offering free advice on here. You maybe don't need it but it might benefit someone else....well it won't now as he a buggered off. Maybe you can give out the free expert advice instead?

I hope that people are not being serious in saying pedestrians should also wear high-vis - they are not part of the traffic on the road like cyclists are and should be crossing roads in safe places. Of course there are some country roads with no pavements - carrying a light is then advisable ! When I take the dog out for a walk at night I put a big yellow coat on which has fluorescent stripes all over it. I know that I probably look like the sun when a set of headlights hit me but I prefer that to looking like a corpse when the car hits me. I am full on dayglo on the bike at night....I don't wear a helmet. Bicycle helmets are mostly air. They will only save your scone if you fall off in a very particular way. If you think you need a helmet then get a proper motorbike helmet which will actually take a big impact and save your grey cells.

@Thornyhill, its not about tnr the small print...it just feels like spamming. His speciality isn't relevant to my knee Report it to a mod then if you think it is spam. Isn't it Ironic* that you would spurn free advice. His last post was a polite 'fkuc this. I'm outta here' after he gets a hard time from two people about touting for business. I haven't noticed anyone having a go at JB for touting for business. Maybe you make judgements based on post count or something unrelated to the knowledge offered by the poster in question? *See what I did there ;-)

I don't see the problem. The guy is offering free advice. His background can be checked via the links and the web. If some people aren't comfortable with it the should either report it to a moderator or STFU. As it is you seem to have scared off a free resource because he missed a tiny bit of small print in the forum rules. Has he posted anything which is blatantly incorrect or blatantly selling his services? The answer is no....so why give him a hard time? @holidayloverxx, I thought you of all people would appreciate free advice from someone who knows about knees.

So many problems with posts like this @tarrantd, no cyclist names themselves a road cyclist , also no true cyclist rides on the pavement or cycle paths, those that do are there for safety. The major issue from this ongoing debate that most miss is this. Although the helmet is designed to protect its user, it's also there to hold your brain inside your bonce should you be hit, how many parents ride a bike and the kids wear helmets but they dont. Ask anyone who rides a bike who has been hit / fallen off if the skid lid saved their life and in 100% of cases it has. Its literally a no brainer, helmets for all including skiers. Can we safely assume that you have fallen off several times without a helmet? :lol: :lol:

Do you mean a compulsory cycling proficiency test and a license for cyclists to use the road? In town, I still see cyclists going down the ‘suicide’ side for HGVs and I wonder what they’re thinking. Every car driver knows to give them plenty of space to manoeuvre. My kids did cycling proficiency tests in primary school. It was mad complicated. Road positioning, signalling, awareness of other traffic and awareness of the frailties of the human body. We had to give authority for them to be shown what happens when cyclist meets car. The school stuck to images of broken legs and road rash which wasn't too gory but was still effective. Not terribly difficult to add it to National Curriculum. It took a few hours over the course of a year. Off topic....at the start of last week I witnessed the funniest thing I have ever seen. RLJ was going about his usual business, scared a few pedestrians and then hit a police car while he was going full tilt through the red light. I wanted to point and laugh but I thought the fuzz might find it inappropriate. I hope it hurt :-D

Maybe everyone who uses the roads should have a test of some description. (Make the car test much harder.) I've managed to get through 40 odd years as a pedestrian and cyclist and nearly 30 years as a driver and motorcyclist. In that time I've had 4 accidents. One in a car was my fault for driving like an idiot about 6 weeks after I passed my driving test. The other three were accepted by insurance companies to be entirely not my fault. We are soft and squishy beings. Cars, bikes, trucks and buses are not soft and squishy. If you set out assuming that if you do something daft then you will be even more squishy than when you left the house then you shouldn't encounter too many issues. Expect everyone else to be stupid and plan accordingly. If they aren't stupid then no harm done and if they are stupid you have hopefully avoided them. I saw a truck recently with a message like this on the back...formatting isn't quite correct but you get the idea " Cyclists passing side---> <---suicide "
