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 :-)

I'm looking for new skis and I'm considering the Elan Amphibio 18ti2, I found in a massive discount (800 for 320) but unfortunately not my size, I need the 172 and this is 178cm.
If anyone wants, that's a steal, they also have the Porsche Design version for a bit more, also only in 178cm.

@AndreSilva, keep your eye on privatesportshop, they do flog off skis at a decent discount from time to time. Ive bought 2 pairs at discounts of between 50-62%. They had one that ended last Sunday night and I think they had some Amphibios in it but which model and size I didnt see.

They might do another sale later, get registered and get their emails. Shipping isn’t exorbitant but they will also run shipping free codes too.

There must be a surfeit of skiwear available after this year's truncated ski season and TK Maxx has some quality clothing from the likes of Dainese, Phenix, Colmar, Vist, Goldwin and Mountain Force currently and it is only September - they started selling ski wear at the beginning of September. Much of it is cited as being 60%-75% off RRP and plenty of bargains to be had.

I don't re-call them having so much skiwear available for sale at this time of year previously?

Shifts for £239 and Bent Chetler 120 for £335 arrived from Ski Bartlett this morning. I noticed they have put up the Shifts up to £399. Whether they made a mistake with mine or not, isn't my problem. When I bought them, they had 5 available, now they show 1. So maybe, it was a genuine sale and they jacked them back up when they realized the bindings were selling like hot cakes...

I got an automated receipt/order confirmation but didn't hear anything for a couple of weeks so I emailed them and was told that because they are soon going into liquidation they couldn't/wouldn't post skis to addresses outside of Germany, so the order would be cancelled and I'd get a refund on my card.

Think this is going to be too big for my swede (although it's on the larger side!), but ordered on the off chance, as for £10 it's worth a punt, if not, i'll return and lose £3. Worth a risk.

Careful with the some of the branded stuff at TKMaxx. A lot of branded companies these days will make actually make stuff for these clearance outlets and they will be lower cost/spec products.

Check what what you are buying is their normal spec product. Also look out for a product that had a lot of stock and has stock over all the normal size range. Again a flag its been made for the clearance outlet.

Otherwise it might not be the bargain you think.

Hope this post is allowed.

For those looking for some new ski gear that won't break the bank and is good for the environment have a look at the One Tree Shop. One Tree at a Time is a grass roots, not for profit based in the Three Valleys. We work to reduce the environmental impact of local businesses and companies working in the outdoor sector.

Part of this includes working with companies to find solutions for excess outdoor garments. Last year we started selling ex warranty, seconds and ex display stock from Isobaa, Fjern and Untrakt as well as gear donated by locals. We assess and repair the gear and get it ready for a second life on the mountains.

This year we've restocked with ski gear donated by various local businesses including New Generation ski school. They had a number of North Face ski instructor and gap student uniforms, many never worn with tags attached. The difficulty came with removing or covering the logos ready for reuse and sale.

After some testing we've found a method of patching and resealing the garments so that they are good as new and ready for the reopening of the slopes (whenever that may be). Proceeds from the sales go back into the running of One Tree allowing us to grow and help more businesses improve their environmental footprint...

A great example of what we offer would be a Gore Tex Pro Freethinker jacket for €120:

https://shop.onetreeatatime.fr/shop/north-face-free-thinker-jacket-orange/

Full range here:

https://shop.onetreeatatime.fr/product-category/clothing/mens-clothing/eco-friendly-mens-ski-jackets/

Note that at present the majority of the stock is male but we have ladies garments waiting to be added to the site. The ladies' garments have a layer of insulation that requires a different method of patching to cover the New Gen logos. Testing continues!
