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 :-)

And to answer your question, I haven't won the lottery or been left a legacy. Unfortunately.

I use some of the money I make teaching on Hokkaido to holiday in Europe.

Listening to #49, although the sound quality isn’t great I could have sworn it was stated that Arthur Conan-Doyle moved to Davos on 1980?!

Anyway about half way thru so far. I hadnt heard of Anzere until it was mentioned no long ago to me by a couple of snowHead so a timely review. Also anything with Dave Burrows on is worth a listen.
