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 :-)

Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person
Two very good and in many ways, very differing reports: nbt experienced Fernie after a drought and loved it, whilst hd experienced the best snow of the last 2 decades and wasn't quite as impressed Shocked I can see hd's point about the nasty traverses but it's what's at the end of them that counts... snowHead

When I get round to it, I'll post mine, which'll probably paint a different perspective again snowHead

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Sharkymark, some of the traverses are not just a pain in the bum for a boarder, they are down right impossible after a dump, as you have to take your board off to walk the uphill bits and then you sink up to your waist in the snow. Mad

Don't get me wrong we had an absolutely stonkingly superb time - probably my best week's snowboarding ever. Maybe I should just have been a bit more realistic with my expectations. Is there anywhere that fresh tracks can be cut all day every day...? wink

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Nice sign from the patrol guys - they know their stuff. The traversing isn't so much of an issue if you're goofy - its a goofy resort for some reason & the benefit is that they do keep the regular punters from lapping the best stuff. Ananconda/Bootleg is a sweet lap on a powder day.

Did you hit the start of Alberta school hols or is everyone in Calgary so rich from oil that they don't bother working any more?
