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 :-)

You got a mention in E168 Kat! Really enjoyed this one - we have Al Morgan on the 2023/24 SIGB Ski Test, plus Lauren and Lindsey from Protect Our Winters on travelling to the Alps by EV and train. Plus you've got a report from me on the new solar panels in Meribel.

@iainm, Just listened through - really good interview with Ed and a good range of topics covered. Ed's passion for the mountains and the sport really comes across. Let's hope the FIS can sort out the TV rights and we can get better coverage of freestyle and freeride events in future seasons.

What were the boots Al was talking about - not the Boa but the others? And what was great about the Salomon skis he said everyone was raving about? Lauren from POW was an excellent listen! And enjoyed Dave Burrows « tourist » snow report. He knows where to take his mates wink

And Ed Leigh was also a really great guest. Although he sold me a 2nd hand Salomon board a few years back which I subsequently smashed up my shoulder with. Thanks Ed!!!

Great as always hearing about Mike’s powder exploits in Hokkaido. His faceshot videos are amazing. There are also some superb resorts on the main island (Honshu) which are easy to get to on the bullet trains from Tokyo. More Alpine terrain and vertical than Hokkaido and also great snow records if perhaps not the super light blower stuff from Hokkaido.

Great work on getting inspiring guests and keeping the content fresh after 170 episodes Iain!!!

We need this for a Japan special/episode! Have all the info as we did a bullet train vv Japan special in 2019 for Fall-Line. From memory, 14 resorts in 14 days (from Honshu to Hokkaido and back) with a lot of bowing, train timetables and conductors in white gloves.

Nice one @iainm, from listening, its a shame they didn't make more out of the bit Chemmy did with the Ladies Ski Club for Ski Sunday - the work they do supporting upcoming female skiers for example - over the very short edit they did do at the time.

For sure. It was interesting to learn that they have very little influence on editorial decisions. You would have thought this would work well as the BBC do like representation stories. Maybe they just wanted the visual entertainment of Chemmy on dodgy skis...

@iainm, recalling your interview with Ed and your other bits with Jenny & Graham on how they make the show (and sometimes... elsewhere - yes, i fear some of us cheat on you with other podcasts Shocked ) I thought they did have a bit more editorial control over the cut of the non-racing segments...

@iainm, I see. Whats his area of expertise and whats on your agenda to discuss?

A timely episode on train travel to Austria as I’m seriously thinking of training it all the way from the UK this season and there are quite a few options as the man in seat 61 lays out on his excellent website. So more practical info would be welcome, even a travel vlog (as I think you did for Travelski?) .

Have you ever interviewed him on the podcast? Would seem to fit very well with your flightfree campaign and he seems a mine of great info.

Episode 177 is now live - great chat with Tim Warwood in which we discuss how snowboarding took him from Tamworth to Colorado to commentating around the world on the sport.

Among the many stories Tim shares, he tells us how he persuaded Bill Nighy to lipsync to Kim Wilde, what’s it’s like being a “professional snowballer” and the truth behind that infamous moment when Jenny Jones won bronze at Sochi.
