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 :-)

Hi everyone, I'm Snoody and I'm a skiholic. It's been 392 days since I last slid on snow, fresh powder at Rusutsu, it was the strongest high I've had while skiing. I keep finding myself looking at fields and hills in my area, working out where I can ski if we have some unseasonable weather. I'm even counting the days to when things open up and I can calm my nerves with a trip to Hemel Methadone

I’m a skiaholic (when I’m not driving an ambulance), and it’s been 801 days since I unclipped my boots after an amazing New Years trip to Montgenevre, oblivious to the impending cancellation of the next two ski holidays.

Cold turkey hasn’t been easy on me. I’ve found myself sneaking downstairs in the middle of the night for a quick Warren Miller fix, tears rolling down my eyes as Warren tells me that as I’m not going this year I’ll be one year older when I do. My wife’s stopped taking me to Tesco’s as I just stand in the freezer section, enjoying the feeling of cold air waft over my face like that woolly dog in the AA commercial on TV.

Eventually something had to give. Two weeks ago I fell very firmly off the wagon. I put down a deposit on a small ski apartment that I’ve never seen, in a resort I’ve never visited, in a country the government currently won’t let me travel to. When this covid nightmare is all over, I’ve got some serious catching up to do…….

I am a skiaholic and its been 408 days since I last skied. Knowing what I know now I wish I would have persisted on a tough day at Cervinia (and not had a massive Saturday night).

It is going to be 382 until I next ski......unless I can wrangle a weekend earlier.

My name is Pie and I'm a skiaholic but it's been 374 days since I last fell off the wagon.
It was probably my best days skiing ever. 50cm of powder a four hour private lesson with an instructor and fresh tracks virtually every run. It's a day that would be hard to beat but I hope to cover close come December...

My name is Mogulski and I am a skiaholic.

First ski trip outside UK was Easter 1987 and meant to be a one off holiday as we thought summer sun was the thing. Mr Mogulski and our teenage sons were also hooked. The ski rep said our sons skied well and could become instructors when older. I said no they are going to university and will have proper jobs. So what did they do? They competed FIS world cup in snowboard and mogul skiing and became ski instructors when they retired as full-time athletes.

It is 406 days since my last fix in Arabba at the 2020 BB. When I need a virtual fix I watch my recordings of Ski A&E filmed in Val T. I imagine skiing those pistes as 3V is where I have skied the most, over 40 trips out of 120 that we have done since the fateful Easter 1987 to Flaine!

What makes it worse is that I live in Scotland which has had the best snow for many seasons but all resorts shut due to the virus. We are restricted to our local area and mine ends 250m from where I live, the 5 mile rule allowed for exercise will not get me anywhere near the snow! I have a P&O ferry booking voucher from Easter 2020 which will be used to ski wherever in Europe is open once travel is allowed.

My name is gustavobs and I have survived for 370 days, 23 hours, 17 minutes and 43 seconds since I sadly unclipped my boots at the Le Tour home-run without knowing what was coming later in the evening, France's lockdown announcement cutting short my career break. I have since used cycling as therapy and my fears have been confirmed: cycling - or any other sport, won't fix my addiction and I keep fighting survival, every day.

375 days away from my greatest love.

I could have done a day or two here locally this season, but just could not get motivated to do so. The local hills are crap and I have skied them for 40 years. The last few years I have mainly skied locally only as a prep for ski trips. With no trip to prep for, it made more sense to leave the storage wax on the skis.

I suppose it will be at least another nine months or so before I would again have the chance to slake my thirst.

Because I am bored, the Haiku version.......

Three hundred seventy five days.
No travel, no skiing and no Apres.
Hope next year is better.

It's been 456 days since my last ski.
I flew to a meeting of international drug addiction experts at WHO in Geneva, and managed to sneak off to Morzine for a few days after. Please don't tell anyone, they think I have it under control.

I'm a skiaholic and its been 375 days since I last skied. But I am still wondering with a little bit of the back of my mind (where there is a hut where I sit and think about skiing), whether when we can go up to Scotland again I might be able to walk up a mountain carrying my skis, to ski a steep gully that still has snow in it, ski part way down again till the snow runs out, before walking back down most of the mountain. Or if I am really lucky and some ordinary upper slopes still have snow, the last part of the climb might even be on skins!
Or am I just fooling myself (and feeding the little me in the hut)?

My name is Rachel and I'm a skiaholic.

It has been 408 days since I last unclipped my boots on snow, and 86 days since I last skied on a dry slope to attempt to get some kind of fix. I was even considering buying an annual pass so that could go through the year.

I spend a lot of time drinking tea out of the mug I bought in resort that has the panorama printed on it, pretending that I'm there.
