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 :-)

...on the other hand comparison sites were necessary when the tech became available because insurers had previously got used to legging over consumers based on inertia and the ballache that ringing round to get alternate quotes would entail. AIUI the main comparison sites are effectively insurers themselves.


Do you have any evidence that claims handling for the SCGB gives much more "benefit of the doubt" to customers than it does for say Boots policies. I would have thought the staff were one and the same. Are you suggesting that whether a claim is accepted or rejected is directly linked to the price paid for the policy, in a macro sense it must be but do claims handlers directly refer to premium paid when deciding on a claim?

V good question, above.

In the meantime, I am starting to wonder which branded ski insurance isn't provided via TIF. A very quick search shows that, in addition to SCGB, they do wintersports insurance for: Post Office (premium policies), Towergate, World First, Holidaysafe, Covered2Go, Alpha Travel, TopDog and Citybond.

They are particularly proud of the commercial benefits they have brought to SCGB, see:

Whether a claim is accepted or rejected will be down to the policy terms and conditions the customer signed up to. It's a contract. Top tip - read your policy. If a dispute ever gets to the FOS (Ombudsman) they will probably rule on what the policy says and each of the many brands managed by TIF will likely have policy terms unique to that brand. Insurers don't like things to get as far as the FOS. If they do it means that the insurer is certain of their ground.

How it all works depends on how it is set up. This is a best guess based on how I have seen other types of schemes set up. Each brand will negotiate their own terms with their insurer and TPA (third party administrator - call handling, claims, assistance). Not always the same but TIF appear to be 'full service'. They will look at existing claims experience, what selling points they need to hit, how much commission they want, what cover levels and excesses, etc etc etc and there will also be an SLA concerning the TPA element. The SLA will outline lots of factors including how fast they pick the phone up and answer emails and ,yes, probably how fast they pay claims and maybe what burden of proof required for a claim to be valid - to give you an example, some home contents policies will pay out only if all the doors and windows were locked and the alarm set, other 'high net worth' policies allow you to leave the place wide open and still get paid out in full. Some car insurers will give you a hire car, others won't. Understandably, the cheap no-frills policies will have tighter terms than the more specialist pricier end.

Generally.......... YGWYPF

I do not normally ever post on this thread, but for once the SCGB has done something I agree with. The new SCGB Safety Officer has finally changed the rules for any off piste skiing and made it complusory for all members any SCGB off piste group whether with a leader, Instructor or Guide to carry full avalanche safety gear if they wish to participate in any off piste activities in resorts on Leader off piste days, on Fresh Tracks holidays or on Off piste courses. I find it amazing it has taken so many years for the Safety Officer to do this, but I for one am very pleased to read yesterday that the NEW safety officer has now done this. I know my friends that still ski with SCGB groups always carry their full gear. I am sure they will be pleased that all others in the group must now do the same! Very Happy

A couple of updates at the SCGB ...

Membership numbers

A recent article about the SCGB in the Parliamentary Review ...

... "A Message from Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, followed by Ski Club of Great Britain's best practice article" ...
https://www.theparliamentaryreview.co.uk/organisations/ski-club-of-great-britain

... gives a membership figure of 30,000. This compares with 27,789 (2017 annual report) and 26,692 (2018 annual report).

The club committed (last November) to doubling its membership in the next 3 years.
Chairman Malcolm Bentley stated, in the 2018 annual report that the SCGB will "... become relevant to many more skiers and snowboarders." There is a new plan "approved ... in September". He amplified this ... thus ...

Quote:
"The strategic plan ... identifies a large number of initiatives across all our activities to achieve these objectives. They are designed to deliver a doubling of membership and subscriptions, holidays numbers, revenue, insurance policies and commission over the next three years. Benefits, services and products to members and non members will be expanded commensurate with, and to support, these targets."


Treasurer Ian Holt expanded on this, with a new strategy for France ...

Quote:
"We are about to establish ‘Ski Club of Great Britain – France’ which will provide us with a formal presence in France. We believe it is incumbent on us to fully engage with the French resorts, including the people and organisations that live and work there. A properly constituted French club will benefit and provide a focus for members, particularly seasonal residents, skiing in France. It will also protect the Club’s operations against any potential ‘Brexit’ impact."


The Club's magazine 'Ski+Board'

A major change in the SCGB's publishing strategy has emerged (also last November) initially via a leaked email ...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/325182624251298/permalink/165109591832622/

In essence, the Club has switched to contract publishing of its magazine, after a 114-year history of independent publishing and independent editorial control.

SKI CLUB OF GREAT BRITAIN DITCHES 114-YEAR PUBLISHING STRATEGY
The news is not new: in essence it is 3 months old. Back in mid-November 2018, a leaked email revealed that Colin Nicholson, editor of the SCGB's magazine 'Ski+Board', had suddenly left the publication. Given that ski magazines are at the peak of their annual production schedule every November, this was unusual timing,.

The Ski Club - which also said last November that it is planning to double its membership over the next 3 years - made no public announcement of this development. It soon emerged that a competing ski magazine - 'Fall-Line' (based in Peterborough) - was taking over production. The SCGB website currently states ...
... "Co-editors: Yolanda Carslaw & Nicola Iseard. Managing Editor: Harriet Johnston"

Link:
https://www.skiclub.co.uk/news-and-e…/ski-and-board-magazine
------------------------------------
The 'Ski+Board' page no longer links to electronic versions of the magazine. The last edition to appear in print and web form was April 2018 (cover shown below).
------------------------------------
Background: the SCGB (est. 1903) has maintained independent editorial and publishing control of its yearbooks and magazines since 1905.

That appears to be a question, but it's not punctuated with a question mark. Please explain how the adjective "mischievous" fits with honest, factual and truthful reportage? If one respects the right of ruling elites to do what the fuck they like, spend money how they like and run things how they like ... with complete disregard to the founding values and objectives of ski club (Ski Club of Great Britain, est. 1903, and highly successful until the late 1950s) ... then obviously one regards my activities as "mischievous". If the SCGB was being run in the interests of its membership we would not be having this conversation.

Pure incompetence, as far as I can see. How long has the New Ski Club of Great Britain Chat Forum been unavailable now? A week?
With 114 years experience of publishing and media, the SCGB should be the authoritative source and the host of the best social media on skiing in the UK. This is not an acceptable situation.

Part of the demographic crisis of the Ski Club was supposed to be solved by 'Line-S':

https://www.line-s.co.uk/

This was established in 2015 and continues to claim to have "over 20,000 members, we are the the largest student snowsports club in the UK."

Are those members on a database, and are they still - after 4 years - still students? I think we should be told.

Dear David,

I humbly apologise for not punctuating my question correctly. I have thrown my smartphone device against a wall and have reverted to a computer that more resembles a typewriter, reminiscent of the age when the SCGB was founded. At least I do not revert to the language of the gutter, as you have done in your reply.

I am unsure as to whether you are still a member of the Ski Club of Great Britain and I fail to understand your tendentious approach to its activities; neither do I understand why you seem to experience schadenfreude when the Club suffers a minor hiccup.

The Club may not reflect the ideals set at its inception in 1903, but most of the current membership that live in the 21st Century that I speak to are entirely happy with its direction.

Fact check: these 'long-standing Rules' had been replaced with new ones in 2002ish. By renewing your membership under the new terms and conditions you accepted these new terms and conditions. Of course, you demanded to be dealt with under the old rules when it came to your expulsion. Your objections were noted and passed on to the Club's legal advisors who came back with the opinion that you didn't have a valid objection.

David, you're an idiot and a coward. When did you last actually go skiing?

First, the good news: the ever-active New Ski Club of Great Britain chat forum is up and running again.

Gerry [Aitken], who's served as a SCGB director for two terms totalling 7 years, has this to say about the Club's decision to 'expel' me in 2013:

Gerry wrote:

Your objections were noted and passed on to the Club's legal advisors who came back with the opinion that you didn't have a valid objection.


Other opinions are available ...



Here's an authoritative legal opinion [that I made up myself, without going to the unnecessary expense of hiring people in wigs etc.] ...

1. The Ski Club of Great Britain was founded in 1903 and ran to very high standards for over 50 years, acquiring a prestigious corner property in Eaton Square. It operated to a set of fair, clearly understood democratic Rules which its members wrote and respected. It had a very high membership, relative to the UK ski population, until the development of Scottish skiing, package tour skiing, charter flights and other factors which led to 'popular skiing' beyond the concern of the 'ruling classes' (for whom Gerry continues to pontificate, trying to act as some form of self-appointed gatekeeper/bouncer).

2. Those SCGB Rules require that the Club's council, when considering the expulsion of a member, have to (a) invite that member to face his/her accusers and make their case in person, prioor to the Council's decision - as in any natural or formal execution of justice (b) form a two-thirds quorum.

3. Since neither (a) nor (b) were complied with, the expulsion has no validity. It's little more than the decision one might expect from a kangaroo court in a banana republic. Since Great Britain is not a banana republic, and we have very established legal standards, there's no reason not to emulate them.

4. As Gerry points out, the Club formed a new operating company early this century, with its own Memorandum and Articles of Association. The package was obtained 'off the shelf' by a former SCGB treasurer, with no consultation of members. The package was railroaded through an AGM with no discussion. The original Rules of the Ski Club of Great Britain continue to apply, in any case. The 'new SCGB' continues to struggle to present any modern relevance to the UK's ski community.
