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 :-)

Just listened to 54, which had the best and most interesting interview I have yet heard with Dave Ryding.

I’ll rated it much higher than your recent reviews, definitely 1 and 1/2 stars Toofy Grin

Thanks guys. Some good feedback there. Dave was indeed a really top bloke, really enjoyed talking to him. As was Steve Cross - so modest about a seriously impressive achievement.

Interviewed Laurie Taylor this week and we have a Q&A with Graham Bell coming up. Next episode should be out early June.

I think she said 43,000. Then back-pedalled and said she’d have to get back to you so I wondered if she had.

@Mike Pow, it was an ...interesting... take on the Olympic path. During it, kept thinking back to Heather Mills shot at getting to the Paralympics, and Vanessa-Mae's run which ended somewhat ignominiously.

I've always thought @Emily Sarsfield is great. I've met her occasionally and she's always been lovely and the way she DIY'd, against the odds, to the level of success she did, is frankly amazing.
But please, Emily, try to train the phrase "kind o like" out of your diction... it must have been said 20-30 times during that podcast.

He was very quick to suggest the idea of the movie! I also wonder how realistic it is that he would get close to the FIS points required to qualify for the Olympics. It's a lot easier to get a ranking than to get a good ranking, especially starting so late in life. I will be surprising if we see him at Beijing, but he is clearly extremely dedicated and determined, so who knows?

@ianm looking forward to the next episode regarding skiing in Scotland.
This season fills me with dread im afraid, for many of the reasons discussed in the thread on this forum. Either it will be decent snow and so busy that it will not be worth going , or it will be poor snow and we'll have no chance of skiing at all. I'll be very interested to hear your take on the prospect.

Interesting bonus podcast with the sustainability guy from Picture. The sound was a bit in and out though.

I like their stuff and a distinctive look. I bought a jacket a few years ago (not sure they had the “Organic” tag in their name then though), found it to be decent quality at not an eye watering price and the recycled tag did help with the choice. So got a jacket and salopettes for our ten year old recently and pleasingly found that it had that room to grow function.

I’d be interested to see if their carbon sink ski wear comes off.

yup, it wasn't ideal for the interview. I assume it was at his end as I've not had any problems with anyone else. I actually cut out several unintelligible sections!

BTW the new pod is out today - Episode 62, featuring Scotland, Touring in Chamonix, World Cup Latest, Andermatt & Tignes. We have Ed Drake talking about the oncoming World Cup season.
