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 :-)

Funny, I've been looking and I haven't found anywhere to spend my money here. According to the ski club these things are expensive to run!

Hello all, I have moved over here for the minute. Bit confused about what I have said yes and no to when registering and don't really understand the yellow faces index, but there are names here I recognise, so am happy! Very Happy - that is was supposed to be a smiley face, clearly I am not good at this.

I did like the absolute minimalism of the Ski Club forum but I could really get used to this. I see it also supports private communication and a range of rather handy features.

It looks like Mrs H and I will be ending our subscription...talk about shooting yourself in the feet.. Ski Club could give the Tory party a run for their money!

John - in the edit box the smilies appear as various text strings but as icons in the final post, alternatively you you may have disabled smilies which I think is an option which appears in your profile or if you use the "post reply" button.

mountain mad,

I joined 12 years ago, and for most of that time there was no chat forum anyway. I joined for the repping service, and I still think it's worth it for that. The resort reps generally have a far more 'open' attitude than this fiasco indicates.

Most reasons to join remain, but now, it's not just cost that deters...

A couple of Reps have made themselves known on the members only forum and seem to be opposed to the SCGB's move and to have some good ideas as to better use of the forum by Reps.

Hi Pete
Ended up finding people in the chalet to ski with - so it didn't happen, but I agree that the repping is a great feature.
Felt I wanted to join because I had got so involved in the site, but now will stick to here as it was the chat part that i liked!

Hi Pete,

Ski Club Reps to be found on these threads:

What proportion of members use the clubhouse? Matthew Clarkson, Bruce Rogers
Don't resign ! Attend the AGM ! Matthew Clarkson
What is the role of the club? Ken Piddlesden

I think it fair to say that Ken and Matthew are anti the decision, Bruce is pro (but possibly because of some of the more forceful comments made regarding the club house)

I note Matthew has joined us - Matthew - if you'd rather I didn't take your name in vain I can edit you out of this post (magic software n'est pas?)

Hi mountain - you haven't said if you enjoyed your holiday but I trust that you did, and you seem to be still in one piece.

Hi Alan - am going to put up a review up on Les Arcs soon - but in brief it was fantastic!
The 'sad old git' will be missed but perhaps its time had come!

p.s. thanks to everyone that has got this up and running so quickly. Really appreciate the effort thats gone into this.

great stuff, hope you have some pics for the gallery (although I still haven't posted mine from Ste Foy - naughty boy) we skied one day in Les Arcs by parking at Villaroger (it was the day Keith Chegwin was there). Found some nice powder but I don't suppose my tracks were still visible Cool

Such a shame the club didn't realise the potential that creating a successful open forum had. Even in resort it's difficult to persuade people to give up a day of their holiday to try skiing with a rep, and yet the vast majority of people really enjoy it (as well as discovering that ski club members aren't the stuck up toffs they're made out to be!!)

It was clear the forum was dispelling the myth among non-members that the ski club is all t**sers and people really were arranging to meet up together.

Ian, no problem with you mentioning what I've written over at the ski club. In fact quite a few reps seem to have turned up - I guess they've come back from repping and want to see if anyone's entered bad write ups about them!! Can't remember any of them writing entries before the ski season started.

I was hoping to use the forum to keep in touch with some of the people I'd skied with, including the ones who turned up for a day but didn't join for whatever reason. Was confident the forum would help the club come across as more of a community all year round and not just for six days skiing a year. Also I can't be bothered with emailing individual people all the time but the forum made keeping in touch much more interesting (and I didn't need to write anything if I didn't feel like it) - much better than emails!!

Matthew - it was good to see you and the other Rep chaps around in cyberspace! I think you've hit the nail on the head - chatting online before hand would encourage me to ski with a Rep.
