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 :-)

Yes, I don't know what happened with Mike's audio and I'm sorry about that. It sounded okay when we were recording and was only when I got to editing that it was clear there was a problem. Will do better in future!

Hi Iain. Just a quick thank you for the podcast. I’ve listened to quite a few other podcasts but ‘The Ski Podcast’ is by far the best for me.
Great content, interesting guests, plus it has really kept us informed through the shall we say an ‘interesting’ last twelve months. I always look forward to the next episode. One episode per week would be good for me and I expect for many others.
In catering for your average British skier you appear to have very few direct competitors. Most other ski podcasts seem to be either technical. (I.e. aimed at Instructors) or American.
I’m sure there are many of us who hope ‘The Ski Podcast’ goes from strength to strength.
Hope we all get back on the slopes soon.

@eggfried100 - thanks so much, reading that has genuinely helped my day. The ski news is relentlessly negative and to be honest with less (paid) work, all the time doing The Ski Podcast has kept me busy, given me a goal and is (just about) keeping me sane. Thanks again

Yes, after Martin Bell mentioned him, I thought it would make a good standalone pod. He was such a nice guy too.
Good point about Vicky Gosling - I'm not sure I'm necessarily on the GB Snowsport 'green list' as the last time I spoke to her I asked her exactly what coming 5th in the medal table (their loudly stated goal) means in terms of medals (she declined to answer, saying it 'wasn't her area' and referred me to Dan Hunt instead).

Great to get an item about skiing in England, though it has taken 73 episodes to get there !
The item on Ski Sunday was about the Weardale Ski Club not Raise. Raise has been on the BBC news recently and has been on Countryfile in the past.
Plenty more material available! The LDSC have been around since the 1930s. Yad Moss got a mention too yayyy snowHead
