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 :-)

Thanks for informative and entertaining report. It really is hard to go past the Dolomites for a ski week. Still my favorite ski area in the world.

Chasseur, I don't think I've done that one all the way down. I've never got past the Plan Boe bar and I've skied it many, many times. Embarassed Toofy Grin

Did you do the testosterone alley bit where you branch off left part way down? That's great fun. Madeye-Smiley

That's the route we normally take, as it's sometimes quieter. I think it's at 1:12 in the video where there's a group of people that have stopped off to the left. It now takes you past the entrance to the Arabba Superpark (jumps, rails etc). Both this route and the Superpark re-join the Red further down. In the video the Red piste looks pretty flat. Most of the times I've been down this, especially later in the day, it has become quite chopped up, like soft moguls. This is also true where the you pop out on the Blue above the village where the piste opens out.

Chasseur, Looks like you had nice conditions and was especially quiet. It's normally quiet anyway, just looks like there was even less people than normal Smile

So I'm up for some cruising/lunching/cruising days.


You and Pedantica will love a trip over to the restaurant at Santa Croce. It's a bit of a hike up a hill to the restaurant and church but well worth it and if you carry your skis up you can ski back down. Great food and fantastic scenery.

+1 for santa croce on a nice day. mind your head though (best wear a lid inside Wink ) worth the last few paces up to the viewing point, too after lunch before popping the skis back on.

and the run back down is probably one of the best blue / easy reds in the area (all in the sun too, since it will be a nice day, of course)


And this is indeed the very same run back down - bonus points available to those who can 'spot the snowhead'



It's on my to do list to return too during the BB too..

Chasseur, thanks. Was looking at the GoPro Hero 3 Silver. Did you ever consider the chest mount option. My wife thinks the helmet mount may make me standout too much on the slope Confused

pokemon, the set came with a head band which I used to mount on the front of my helmet (snigger). To be honest, I had no idea what view that would give until I downloaded onto the laptop after the first day. Relatively happy with the film position and I did change the angle to a lower shot several times which also seem to come out quite well. Just need to stablise the mount and/or tighten the helmet to get rid of some of the judder.

Did you use the little while rubber gasket thing that fits between the mount and the insert? Makes a big difference in reducing judder.

That sounds painful. Shocked
I look like a mushroom just wearing a helmet. God knows what I'd look like with a camera stuck on it. Actually, I know exactly... the home of the Wombles is only just up the road.
