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 :-)

that is pretty funny, and so true

I've been left bemused with some of the 'chat' you end up having in resort..

eg...me to local / stranger at the bar "so what are your favourite runs around here?"

Response "Oh....I own a place here, yeah, I live here."

me to local / stranger at the bar "so what are your favourite runs around here?"........no clue, only visits a few weeks a year, all about status for some

Yes, happens here too, in fact there are loads of non-skiing ex-pats. Doesn’t mean you should discount them, maybe they are too old for skiing, but clinging on to old glories.

And to be fair, ‘what are your favourite runs’ is a bit of a lame intro, and unlikely to get you an invitation to a party Smile Smile it's not all about the skiing.

@telford_mike, all good points......this guy was in his early 60's, and I was just making idle chat about skiing that day. I remember looking pretty scruffy, so he probably just wanted to set the tone early.

Fair point. It's not age, but physical infirmity.

Well there are ultimately [spoilers] if you watch the film

I never knew the names of runs when I lived in resort. I just skied. I still
Can’t tell you what the names of lifts are - just areas!

Switzerland- I will never understand the sense of humour. Also how unrealistic is that video - where are there 3+ kids?

Except it was in my local bar. He assumed I was a tourist for sure. It's hard to put it in context.....I actually encouraged him to join the conversation I was having with another local.....
Nevermind, it takes all sorts....I'll work on better lines, or hang out in better bars

Verbier is an interesting place. Plenty of wealth for sure but also hard core freeriders young and not so young who make for great ski buddies - a semi-retired Pharma exec, local ex-pisteur with a kargo bike startup and a carpenter/builder from Essex to name a few!

Maybe it sound differently when spoken in German?

But usually locals don't talk about their "favorite runs around here". It's more about what's the "best runs today"...

They may indeed have a (long) list of "favorite" runs, but it's largely irrelevant when you "live there".

There's that too.
