Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

@SnoodlesMcFlude, Oh they absolutely would, but our tabloids are also undeniably ****s.

Yes, that sensational distortion appears to be the only tool most leading "rags" will consider in their undignified scrabbling for readership.

Not recently, but a contemporary editor of one of the above was stating their approach to any head/strap line to a story. They refused to consider any material from their report team that didn't give a clear and contentious split, be that moral, class, money, nation or any other category we could mention.
They put it, "in basic terms, that attention grabber simply sells more circulation" always has and always will. Even the most feint link to current story, that they may even "flip flop" in the piece, to in effect deny their own primary writing, would still be sufficient to use those headline.

Well I didn't expect the thread to go in the direction it has gone.

Lets all hope, whatever your situation, that you get on the slopes as soon as its safe to do so!

Saalbach has a new Gondola link to Saas Fee ski area.

On looking out of my window earlier, I noticed that the Schattberg Xpress gondola had been closed due to high winds. Can anyone direct me to this new gondola, in case the weather is better in Saas Fee?
In other news, a British neighbour of ours drove down a few days ago, via the Chunnel (apparently breezed his way through, even though he only has a holiday home here in Saalbach). Our elderly Austrian neighbour nearly had a fit! Convinced he’s imported the British variant - negative test certificate or not.


What an ingnorant, selfish &%^%£%

Got two trips 1/2 organised (done before the full scale of covid was apparent). One has accomodation but no transport plans and the other flights but nothing else.

Fully expect neither to actually happen. Don't really feel too hopeful for summer holidays either. At least that way it can only get better.

I saw this. I genuinely cannot understand what they were thinking of. The reputation of British skiers is already in the gutter...this doesn't help. Taking your skis FFS

UK Nationals, resident in the UK should need an Exit Visa before being allowed to leave the country, perhaps with the requirement reviewed monthly. There are a very limited set of people who can legally travel abroad. So why not enforce what is the law? This isn't lots of people ignoring the rules, it's just a very small minority. It's easy to enforce at airline check in, Eurotunnel or ferry terminals - no visa? no further. Most people who are entitled to go should be able to get the certifications they need. Seems to me the current situation allows the HO to take the 'If only people would obey the rules!' line rather than actually do something simple to enforce the law. And at the same time, it would reinforce the case for other countries to open their borders to UK visitors if they thought the UK authorities actually gave a **** about the people they allowed to travel.

Spot on! No point making rules that are just not going to be enforced, its pointless legislating.

Maybe they were just "delivering goods" to a resort although the customs implications are probably a disincentive to try that logic.

The head of the Genome sequencing team in the UK was on the radio this morning.

He said they started looking for the variant that is now the so-called British variant....but only after having been asked to do so by one of "our European neighbours" which had spotted something going on in their country. My money would be on Germany where in December the rates just kept going up while the restrictions got tighter and tighter.

They asked to UK to look for it because the UK does nearly 50% of all the CV sequencing in the world!
10% of all positive tests get sequenced in the UK.


The fact that it took hold in Kent always suggested to me that it was likely to have originated from Continental Europe. So that kinda confirms it! But because the UK has advanced genomic testing, we're getting the blame for it! rolling eyes
