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. 50,000+ 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 :-)

@SnoodlesMcFlude, Used Devon ski at Heathfield a few years ago and found them fairly good. I don't know if they have changed much since but they are not going to match CEM for specialized fit. But if your fit is fairly standard without too much manipulation you should be ok. you can always give them a try and walk away if not satisfied as its not too far to travel. It might be worth a phone call to see how much variety they have in stock for your size and experience level of boot.

Watching dogs scrabble on a hard floor is funny but watching them after a ski service is hilarious :twisted: . I now use a piece of old carpet (any cheep bit will do) and chuck it down under where i'm doing the ski's, roll it up, shake it outside when finished.

@JP Wolf, Devon Ski are now at Heathfield, I had boots fitted when they were in Newton and it was good fairly good, but I knew what I was looking for, picked a fairly quiet time and invested time to get the right fit. http://www.devonski.co.uk/

Started nearly 27 years ago at 34 and have managed to ski every year since and several weeks a year for many of those. In the early years regularly skied the dry slopes. Good instruction played a major part of my enjoyment of skiing and the mountains. Apart from a snapped Achilles tendon I have managed to stay pretty much injury free. Having dived (scuba) since I was 16, it seemed to be a natural complement for a winter activity as I got older. Basically fancied trying it and got hooked :lol:

immer schuss, I would say most definitely if the snow is good. It makes a good change from the glacier. Beware that if there are weather problems and the glacier is closed Schlick will get very busy, so get there early. Also the elfer (11’er) behind the Tirolerhof and Sport hotels is a good half day when the glacier is closed. Of course, if it's your first time in the area then you should have enough on the glacier. :sH:

Can' t comment on the funds raised, but I for one, am not concerned in the least, I am sure there is nothing sinister or untoward going on, and hopefully Chemmy or whoever has benifited will be along in time. In the meantime, the National Championships are in Meribel at the moment, (28th March to 5th April). According to the FIS results, Chemmy was second to Louise Thomas in the Super G on the 29th. :shock: Chemmy won the Giant Slalom on the 30th, (quite convincingly judging by the times. :sH: More info: http://www.britishalpinechamps.com

In all the 20 odd years of skiing I’ve seen some funny things, but.. On a short trip with OH to Austria at the moment, Gotzens, for easy skiing above Gotzens/Mutters and a day or 2 at Axamer Lizum. Day 2, coming back up from a wiz down the red to Gotzens, see a woman, maybe late 20’s, standing other side of the top of the lift barrier at the top of the gondola. No one else around,( it’s been lovely and quite with good snow), I’m just coming off the lift, walk out and drop ski’s on the snow and while I’m faffing around clipping boots and putting gloves and goggles on, this woman starts taking clothes off… First off is ski jacket, then the fleece, then the base layer, leaving just BRA, then hands come around her back and quick as a flash, before I can offer my services she pops her bra off. :shock: Then starts putting layers back on. :( Well, as I said, never in 20 odd years have I ever seen anything like it, a real eye opener, or an eye full whichever, if you know what I mean. I have no idea what was going on, and I am too much of a gentleman to have enquired at the time, so ladies, have you been up to such striptease indulgences whilst skiing, in total public view ? (sorry chaps, it was all too much of a surprise to get any photos). Or maybe it was just a dream !!! :-D

Briefly, depending on your budget, there are several very good hotels or bed & breakfast rooms available in Neustift. Most of the top hotels will offer a free pickup service from the airport, its about a 20 minute drive. From Neustift there is a free bus service with the lift pass to the Base station. You can stay almost anywhere between Innsbruck and Neustift as the busses run the whole length, but they are more frequent yjr nearer you are to Neustift. Depends what sort of stay you are planning and if you are only looking at skiing Stubai. :sH:

Hi, munchimo, There is plenty of skiing within reach from Innsbruck. Whether there will be snow at the lower resorts ? well if I or anyone else could forsee that we would all be very happy :sH: . But from Innsbruck you have the option of the Stubier Glacier, even if it is a fair bus ride and the snow is building quite nicely already and is currently sking well. But that would only be a fall back option as there are several local options. Have a look here for some info on these: http://www.innsbruck.info/xxl/_site/innsbruck/_lang/en/_area/478338/_subArea/600111/index.html

I first went skiing in 1987, to Poiana Brasov in Romania, our instructors were Frankie and Vally (so they kept saying), Vally turned out to be the head honcho of the local ski school. It was the start of a love affair with skiing that has never wained to this day. We progressed steadily as a group and by the end of the week skiing full length runs (though by comparison with what I do now they were short runs). I have had many weeks in ski school since then, the early days were to Bulgaria and Romania (it was cheap but we also loved something about those countries), Then lessons in Austria, Andora, France and Italy. All this was complimented by alot of dry slope skiing to hone the technique. The highlight (and eye opener) was joining a couple of others for a weeks race training which was in Italy, which is where I began to understand more about the mechanics of skiing, and what speed and control really was all about. I think (IMHO) that if you want to keep progressing and improving confidence and technique you should never write off the odd lesson. The better instruction for me has been with British instructors from Interski which was in Aosta in places like Courmayeur, apart from the weeks race training in Italy. The worst was in France where the instructor decided he didn't want to speak any english,apart from "follow me" ! But this was only once and have had some good experiences in France. I think the most consistant instruction by non British instructors has been in Austria, but that's just my opinion.
