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 :-)

Some good deals at sports direct, just bought a Nevica Vail jacket for £50 list £199(yea right!) But still seems ok


Was it the bright orange one by any chance.? (in keeping with your forum name)

I nearly bought the bright orange one, but Mrs Awd veto’d it. Settled on a 20k grey and black one from Dare2B. I was sooo tempted by the orange Nevica one though.


Oh yes!

For those who use Spikes Spider snowchains, or who are considering them, Amazon have some fairly impressive bargains in certain sizes (e.g. the XXL size reduced from £301.49 to £73.12) here:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=spikes+spider+sport&tag=amz07b-21

Note that these prices are for the chains only and don't include the fixing kit which will cost new users the better part of £100. For those (like myself) going through a significant resizing of their existing chains, this seems to be a good way of picking up lots of spare bits quite cheaply even if the size you want isn't on offer. If you're not sure which bits you need for any size, the Roofbox company has a list of the components for each size.

"Sports Direct" are currently offering 20% off anything bought via their App until tomorrow. Some skis are overpriced (i.race) but some look good value. Might be worth it to someone

There were 2 sets of Leki poles in the Rock Bottom outlet in Betws-Y-Coed yesterday that got snapped up in the space of half an hour, I got one of them. If you're passing I suggest it's worth a look for periodic ski gear at silly-low prices (and rock climbing gear all of the time) as they get all the disposals from the Cotswold Outdoor shops whether it's end-of-line, returns or damaged stock.

Nope. I was looking through the Defence Discount Service web site, at all the companies who are part of the scheme and saw Snowsafe listed. I had a quick look at their site and realised it was aimed at off piste skiing. I just thought I’d share it with others. I actually thought of you when posted it.

Good catch, I need a new Helmet, but looking at the Oakley site I prefered a MIPS one (none left in my size) and would have liked the adjustable vents of the MOD5. Quick search later... Ellis Brigham have the MOD5 MIPS in white at 95 quid (half price). They describe it as 'Womens' but Oakley's own site doesn't so I think this is just good old retail sexism. I don't want another black helmet anyhow. The 'Mens version' in black is full price!

Thats a great catch from Cotswold on the Icebreaker.

Although I dont actually need them now, I use Merino all the time for cycling, walking and - of course - skiing, so the two I have in rotation at the moment will fall to bits within a year I reckon.

Just bought two L/S for grand total of £57.80 - for Icebreaker Merino, that is a great deal - thanks !!
