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 :-)

World's worst skier causes diplomatic row

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Adrian Solano, dubbed the "world's worst skier" created a diplomatic row between Venezuela and France when the French booted him out - claiming he was trying to immigrate illegally to France and that he wasn't a skier (that according to the Venezuela government's propaganda service: The BBC).

Having watched him compete in the World Championships at Lahti (Finland) yesterday, I'd say the French have a point.

He looked better in the skating event. Quite fearless on the downhill sections really.

Solano worked in a kitchen for 3 years to save enough money to fund his world cup dreams. He trained on rollerskis on the mean streets of Caracas. He blaims the French for being so bad, not because he trained with the ESF but because them booting him out meant he didn't get to train on snow a month before the World Championships and turned up "woefully unprepared".

The Finns gave him a lot of support and paid some expenses for him, a bit of crowd funding helped.

Downhill skating?

He looks better than me. I tried it, but quickly went back to downhill.
