Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

The Milton Keynes Ski Test Sept 2013 (MKSkiTest) will run from Sat 28 Sep 2013 to Sat 28 Sep 2013

We've an opportunity to do a Ski Test at SnowZone Milton Keynes on 28th Sept.
The Ellis Brigham test stock will be there (Those who met them at the EoSB know their test fleet is extensive) we can also expect Armada, Blizzard, Kneissl, Nordica and Rossignol who have all confirmed they'll be there. Whitedot are also a possibility.

This is a great chance to checkout the new models for the coming season. Whether you're looking to buy/upgrade this Winter or not, it's always good to experience different skis - teaches U a lot about your skiing!

The session will run from 4PM to 9PM. The slope will be closed for grooming for an hour between 6 and 7, which would be a good opportunity for a beer or pizza or something before getting back to a freshly groom slope.
The cost will be £35 for the full session or £25 for super/mega-snowHeads.
For under 16's £30 for the full session or £20 if the junior is a super/mega-snowHead in their own right.

Please indicate your interest above as we need a minimum of 20 to make the efforts of Ellis Brigham and the ski reps worthwhile.
UPDATE: We've clearly got enough interest to make this worth going ahead with so we're ON.
Hit the button above and then select the 'Sign me up' option.

Everybody coming needs to sign up from their own snowHeads account (yes even kids) so if you've got a +1, please sort them out with their own snowHeads ID.
(I've made this big as no-one seemed to read it and I kept getting asked for +1's)

Are you coming to the MKSkiTest?
I'm in - Sign me up! CLOSED

little ms spock, I've just checked how long I've had my current skis and it's now four years (I'm trying to justify a new pair. wink ) AFAIK you've been looking for skis for at least as long as that. Shocked

I would come to MK but a) I've identified my next skis, which Ellis Brigham don't have and b) I won't be in the country.

Iski, 2013 Dynastar Exclusive Legend Eden, not dissimilar to my current ones, but rockered and a little bit wider in the waist. It may prove difficult to find a pair, though, in which case I'll have to think again. I've been told by someone in the know that there is very little excess stock this year, so a previous-season bargain will be hard to find. I had this problem with my current pair, but did manage to get hold of them in the end, with help. Maybe I'll be lucky again. (I probably should have bought them in Tignes last year, when I had the chance, but I was feeling mean. Silly.)

Megamum, You are aware I hope that the weekend of the 28th/29th at CFe is a race weekend, and so half of the main slope will be reserved for the racing until mid-afternoon each day.
Or maybe you are competing? Toofy Grin

I'd be up for this but given only 2 weeks notice I have severe doubts that it will actually happen unfortunately as getting 20 people on a Saturday is a bit of a challenge.

Also only saw it by accident as I do not generally look at stickies.

livetoski, I can't help you with the Hemel thing but I think we could find an easy agreement between you and EB. They don't tend to be so exclusive, as S&R traditionally have been. Actually, on that note, how are they about you coming to Hemel?

They have always been fine, even helped out with ski servicing etc, it helps that I sell skis they don't plus it may have something to do with the fact that my lad did a season with the manager who used to run Hemel, she has gone to Iceland now though!!!!

Hopeful question - do Snowheads have the slope to themselves or is the test session in with the general public?

adybabe, we wouldn't get the slope to ourselves unless we had a pretty substantial crowd confirmed. Big numbers can get U all sorts of privileges Wink
The ski test though is exclusively a snowHeads one.

Why?
