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 :-)

@pieman666, Sorry, my mistake. It is the Chat Forum which, in their words is going to be "retired".

I believe they're doing away with it. Incidentally, I'm still getting updates from their meetings even though I'm no longer a member and haven't been for a while. Now if I was a good sort I would let them know...
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

I managed to get through to their call centre but it then took 55 minutes to reschedule a cancelled flight from March this year to Jan next year. But then I received no promised confirmation email with booking ref. and e-ticket so no record of flight details. When I called back the next day I got the same imbecile that I had spoken to the day before who claimed there was no Heathrow to Innsbruck flight on the date and time I had booked the previous day!! (It was clearly there on Skyscanner). I had to raise an official complaint before a very helpful 'manager' sorted everything in five minutes. Grrrrr :-D I like flying with BA but their customer relations sucks.

With a third wave inevitable and a very relaxed attitude towards any sort of vaccination program next year's ski season is looking a bit doubtful. It's as if the French have hit the self destruct button.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I was in a similar situation. Spent a few seasons instructing on a pair of 204cm GS skis and then a 25 year break. When I got back into it it was all weird skis and people wearing helmets! I now ski three or four weeks a season (Covid permitting) and have finished up with two pairs of skis. One is an all mountain ski but the other is very much a carving ski (Hero Pro short turn). When you get the hang of these new fangled carving skis they're a whole lot of fun!

It's surprising how far this thread had gone off topic, how quickly and for how long. I really do wander how many posters on Snowheads now days have any interest in skiing.

It would be interesting to know how many of these Gap Year vocational students actually go on and make a career out of skiing. Beyond maybe spending a few weeks "picking up babies" or a bit of instructing on dry slopes back in the UK I suspect very few. Equally it would be interesting to know, though we never will, how many are just treating this as an opportunity to get round the restrictions and do a bit of skiing for a few weeks. For those that are genuinely trying to make a career of it I take my hat off to them and wish them all the best on what will be a tough journey. Back in the eighties, having attained the dizzy heights of level two, I did two seasons teaching in Italy and was made welcome by the local ski school. Such opportunities are going to be few and far between now with Brexit, Covid and an inevitable amount of antipathy towards the Brits. There will be a few that make it and they will probably be very good at their jobs. Because they will be there for all the right reasons and will have earnt it the hard way. For those that are just there for a bit of a jolly; May they rot in hell!

As @JamesHJ, said, what are they doing about it? If the Pfizer vaccine is now going to be in short supply surely they should be moving heaven and earth to get vaccines from elsewhere. Or will a Gallic shrug suffice?

Maybe the UK's mass vaccination and lockdown will get things under control to the extent that we could all go skiing later in the season but the way European numbers are now increasing and their apparent lack of vaccination roll out (esp France) will surely mean that any realistic hopes are now gone.

@davidof, Back to your first post; I should've listened!! Went out to the garden this morning to clear up after the dog and wham! Four paved steps completely covered in clear ice with me at the bottom. My wife saw me going down and rushed over to help only to bounce down the offending steps and finish up on top of me. We're both in our early sixties but thankfully we're both mildly obsessive about fitness which I think saved us both from serious injury. As it is she has a bruised hip and me a bruised back. It could certainly have been a lot worse. As you said: It's icy, don't rush about like it's summer! Hope your ribs aren't too bad.
