Poster: A snowHead
What was your favourite discovery, or what have been your favorite discoveries, in your years of wintersports so far?

For example, it could have been:
* an excellent mountain restaurant only accessible by a black run
* that snowboarding is easier than skiing
* the reason why there's a 2 year waiting list for accommodation in La Grave
* a hidden off-piste area known only to a few
* how to do turns in powder
* a one-way route between officially unconnected resorts
* Raclette/Tartiflette/Fondue/etc.

The love and intimate knowledge of a great ski area (in my case PdS). Its beauty, its ability to thrill, challenge, and delight. The nooks and crannies, the great runs, the backcountry, the nursery slopes. The hidden powder stashes, cruisy blues, cliff jumps, couloirs and bump fields. The places to savour Madeye-Smiley , and the places really not to go Skullie. The incomparable gift of the Alps sliding by beneath my feet snowHead .

If you hold onto your Ski Outerware long enough, it will eventually come back into fashion.

I was amazed to see that my predominantly Neon Green Phoenix Jacket/Salopettes would have been "In" this year, if I'd had the courage to dig them out of the attic. Puzzled ....They had remained unloved and in splendid isolation for many years, as my family simply refused to be seen in my company, if I wore them. I now have options...until good taste prevails again.

...though, I think it's safe to say that my Event Onepiece will remain confined to the fashion dustbin of history; but it remains available, if the whims of ski fashion go completely nuts. It will go nicely with my Blizzard Headband and Carrera Glacier Sunglasses (replete with snap-on leather side pieces and nose protector), which haven't seen the light of day since 1987.

The rotisserie chicken in the restaurant at Alp Bella, Ischgl. The perfect skiing lunch.

Tartiflette - simple but sooooo good

After years of skiing with just my other half - Skiing with our kids - 2 things this year stand out - for the little one the smile on his face when he got his ESF Garelou badge - the bigger one nailing a tree run alongside a piste in the PDS and still talking about it now

Skiing - after 20 years on a board getting back to 2 planks Smile

Sherpa in Tignes for lunch. Half a chicken with chips (ie enough for 2 of us to share) with a bottle of water and a beer for the princely sum of €8.50!!

Canada, after 5 crap weeks in France.

Beaver tails in Lake Louise. I believe sadly long gone, I think around the millennium.

Lying in Banff hot spring looking at trees, stars and then snow coming down.

A monoboard / monoski early 90s. Yes really.

A mountain with snow 4h drive from me. Sadly not open this warm season.

I could board ambidextrously when I started, not sure I could repeat that now.

I hope in the coming weeks to find out what it's like to ski with my two girls; I want both parallel by the end of the holiday!

1) I thought I'd tasted all possible cheese tastes - until I tried ripe Reblochon in Hotel Albert Premier
2) The biggest cornish pasty in the world at Les Chalets de L'Arc: Le Chausson de Boulanger
3) The ultra-chilled-out lounge bar of Hotel B1izzard
4) The secret bar in the forest by Bow Falls in Banff - The Waldhaus Pub
5) The hidden goat village of Lindarets/Avoriaz - a nexus of several restaurants
6) The most pleasurable alpine snowboard - The Swoard
7) That the old
overnight sleeper snowtrain was the least stressful way to get to the Alps

Thanks! That brought back hazy memories. Went once on the snow disco train and it was once, didnt even manage the return journey. Not the best way to set oneself up for a weeks skiing as I recall. Seemed to remember the bar then became the buffet car in the morning and the grill would not work when the train was stationary which it seemed to be for a good while during the journey. Didnt go down well when desirous of a morning grilled sandwich to help take the taste of the previous nights festivities away. After a week of hard "skiing" and unable to an eighth tired and emotional night on the trot a few of us bit the bullet and bought Eurostar tickets to get back. There is somewhere a photo celebrating the fact on the platform at Waterloo of getting back some 12 hours before the others.

stinks in summer though, and too many tourists
and the restaurants in the Linderets bowl that I always associated as "anything so long as it is with frites" in winter, and packed (hence the reason to drop down to goat village), do very very good food in summer, and are not heaving.

Well, if one mustered incredible willpower, one could restrain oneself from inebriation (and worse). Then, one could wake up (if sleep occurred) sober, albeit bleary eyed, to a frosty morning's sunrise in Moutiers (or wherever) to then wonder whether it was possible to cadge a lift from a tour operator, of if not, whether to get a taxi, or wait several hours for the bus. "Taxi!"

I did say 'least stressful' - not 'best'.

Although the original service is now discontinued, one can still get a sleeper train, but it's just not quite the same ambience.

Carving skis, after sticking with 2m gs skis far too long due to listening to my brothers opinions, the sensation of turning the skis so hard so fast so low that the only limitation is the strength in my thighs, I wish I had the bottle to get my motorbike that low!
