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 :-)

Mogul courses in the CFe by Indepth Snowsports

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Indepth Snow Sports are running mogul courses in the CFe in July, September, October and November. They have intro/beginners courses and intermediate/advanced courses.

Six people max to each course. They video you, for instant feedback. http://www.indepthsnowsports.co.uk/dates-prices/ The price includes your lift pass.

I'm thinking of doing one of the intro ones and was wondering if there were another five Snowheads who were interested, so we could make the course all Snowheads.

I'm probably going to do one regardless of the response here.

This is not a spam email, as I have no affiliation to them at all, I'm simply posting to see if there are five other Snowheads who may want to make an afternoon of it.

Don't worry, I can guarantee i have no finesse at all , so we can be over confident togther. And I'll probably spend the first 30 minutes on my backside.

All the intro mogul courses are on Thursdays and the advanced ones on Fridays. I'm definitely a candidate for the intro ones. Confused As I work for myself, I can pretty much make myself available on any date. Just need to decide which month to go.

I'm thinking of doing the one on October 17th. It's a little quieter work wise for me. Also it will give me three months to practice what I was taught and hopefully be near enough to the BirthdayBash that I won't have forgotten everything by then. Puzzled Confused Sad

@Grizzler, if we can. Hopefully October is near enough to the BB, that I won’t have forgotten everything I’m taught by then. There are only six allowed on each course. So far, myself and @kittya are booked on the October 17th one. @Kittyblades, is also hoping to be able to join us. @audfart may also join us if he’s not working.

I'm interested but what qualifies a beginner? I can link about 5 or 6 bumps together and after that it all goes pear shaped.

@homers double,
This is what they sent me when I asked about the two courses they run. - "The improver course is for anyone who can get down the bumps in anyway they can really and we will improve their technique and confidence. It's for those who just want to improve their bumps, right up to instructor standard. The beginners is just that, for those who have never or have just dipped their toe into the bumps".

I can get down bumps fine, but with no discernible technique and not breaking any land speed records. My thinking is that anything he teaches me has got to improve my technique.
Even though I've opted for the beginners course, I'm assuming that if he finds I (or anyone else on the course) can actually manage the bumps from the outset, he will simply tailor his feedback accordingly and give pointers and drills to improve technique still further.

Just a quick reminder, there are still two places left on the beginners moguls course with In Depth Snowsports in the Chillfactore on Thursday 17th October (PM).

There's a maximum of six on the course. There are currently 4 Snowheads booked onto it. Can we make it a full house of Snowheads and have our very own "mini moguls bash"? snowHead snowHead

Just nabbed the last 2 for me and Aidan. We both can get down bumps but more by luck - don't think you could describe us as "skiing" them! I hate them - you'll usually find me at the top of the slope staring down, whispering Fk! Fk! Fk! and waiting until there is absolutely no-one I can crash into before proceeding.

@Scamper, yay, nice one. A full house of Snowheads. snowHead

I'm using my own skis, as is @audfart. I expect @aewynia and @kittya will also be using their own as well. Best to gain experience on your own skis, if you have them. Anyway, theirs are a lot narrower and lighter than mine.

I'm the same in bumps, in that I can get down them, with no grace or discernible technique; but I absolutely love them. Give me a steep red that's mogul central and I'm as happy as a pig in muck. I'll happily throw myself down it. I simply love bouncing around like a pinball. Puzzled Toofy Grin (providing the moguls aren't frozen. Shocked )

The CFE do create their moguls very close together from what I've seen, so I may not be quite so keen on them by the end of the day. Confused

See you a week Thursday.

Cheers
Awd (aka John)

Thanks John, we'll bring ours - prob could do with a service anyway having spent the summer under the bed.

Looking forward to meeting fellow Snowheads - I've been an enthusiastic lurker for a year or so but haven't, until now, managed to match our travel plans with gatherings.

OMG! I am ridiculously excited at the thought of donning boots and skis again!!! Plus, a titchy bit scared of the moguls!

Cheers,
Elaine

Quality instruction, and lovely group members - my first ever real-life Snowheads encounter!!

Just realised I spent the whole session skiing in double orthotic insoles - I'm so used to changing from shoe to shoe I'd completely forgotten my ski boot ones are already moulded!! Oh well, as the song goes, things can only get better!

Hadn't realised, thought you knew people, hadn't caught on the bit in this thread where you booked.
Yes, I agree. Good company & excellent instruction, I'd not expected two instructors but reckon it worked perfectly. My feet hurt Confused Don't know how you managed with two sets of insoles?!

Glad you enjoyed it. Nothing worse than suggesting a course to people and it doesn’t live up to expectations. I thought the instruction was excellent and got a lot from it. I’d be definitely up for a group session before the season starts. In particular as Noel said he could tailor the tuition to whatever each person was looking to achieve.

The other really big plus to come out of today, is the Awd gits have now got their own personal support team in place - a doctor (@aewynia), a nurse (kittya) and a physiotherapist (@neens). Sorted. Toofy Grin wink Happy days.

That sounds like a great course. Thanks for the update. I'm quite tempted to book a future date. £80 is a great price for 4 hours, including lift pass.

I went on the intermediate/advanced course yesterday, I really enjoyed it and came out the better for it.

I'm planning on doing some more time (1:1) with the instructor to try and sort out by bad posture/habits in the near future. Would definitely recommend giving them a shout if you're after some instruction there.
