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 :-)

Sorry I just like owning and being a punter. Means I don't need to feel guilty about sliding turns and being sloppy. Also there's 2 levels of "good" and punter good is a lot easier to measure up to than instructor good. Maybe that's a topic for another podcast.... wink

@Dave SnowPros, thanks Dave. That clarifies the intent and that it's not really for punters no matter how interested in skiing they are. Which is fine - if its not intended to be a pro podcast then it doesn't need to sound like one.


I have to say, as a ‘pro’ that I really dislike that term punters. It’s not them and us, we’re all up there trying to enjoy the snow and ski the best we can, regardless of the level.

I found the quality of the Tom Gellie episode so bad and hissy that I had to stop listening. Does it get any better if I stick with it??

@kitenski, seemed to vary a bit throughout, I was driving and there were bits I didn't get because the quality was so poor.
In general I'd say the volume of all episodes has been far too low - so you end up turning the volume up massively, amplifying all the background hiss too. That's probably due to the initial recording level being set too low, and needs to be fixed at the point of recording. This is a shame because it does distract from the content, which is generally very interesting.

@kitenski, it gets better, definitely worth a listen Tom Gellie has some interesting things to say. Especially if you are at the geekier end of the ski instructor spectrum.

Yes, I’m really disappointed about the quality of sound on the Tom Gellie one. If you can stick with it it does get better.

When we were recording it, there were no real problems but the recording device seemed to have picked up all of the higher end sounds from Skype and the connection to Australia. I fiddled with as many settings as I could to make it listenable.

The next one with Phil Brown that is out now was done live and is much better quality. He’s a great guy and it’s one of the best ones I’ve done so far.

Thanks for the feedback all.

To say the least! Shocked

What an absolute clusterf*ck. What has that basi schmuck got against SB?

(Need to check sound levels as presenter's voice too loud at times, for headphone users, in comparison to guest)

Which episode has Scott in it? Ta.
