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 took delivery of a very sweet piece of kit from @spyderjon which I have been thinking about for a while, stupid expensive, didn't really need but wanted one anyways...

Did need a new uniform jacket and managed to get a hold of one that isn't readily available in Europe, so hopefully only kid on my block to have one next season Cool Cool

anyone else get any extravagant ski gear in the sales or anything out of the ordinary?

@spyderjon must've taken some time off from sunbathing. In the last hour I have taken delivery of the Superguide 95s plus skins that I've had my eye on for the last 18 months. And they're this season's so they match my outfit Laughing

@Maireadoconnor, Sportpursuit summer special?

Went to the HH outlet in Cham for a new jkt for me as old one was getting baggy and came out after equipping the whole family with new gear head to toe. A more expensive afternoon than I was planning.

Got some Whitedot Directors from SpyderJon and can't wait to get them on the snow. After a sunny morning, it's just finished raining in Les Menuires. Had a nice walk from Menuires to the Corbelys restaurant and then caught the bus back from St Martin Very Happy

I've been good (so far), just some new ski pants, which unfortunately make my shell look old. I do need a new helmet and gloves though. I also intend to buy transceiver etc. at some point...

Hoping I can make it to next summer without 'needing' skis or boots.

Prolly about time for a new transceiver. Definitely wanna get some Shifts. Maaaaybe also the new Full Tilt tech boot, or similar Dalbellos (fell in love with the 3-piece flex last season). Not sure which skis yet, maybe new touring, or maybe new powder...

Definitely need some new boots to replace the wellies I've got at the minute, although not sure when I'm going to find the time and money to get somewhere to get them fitted.

Am trying not to look at anywhere selling skis because I've now got 5 pairs and only really want to ski on one of them (and maybe one other pair for rock hard icy days).

Did you get any discount? This is what I'm thinking, new HH jacket, trousers and maybe gloves, cos mine are are all 7 years old minimum.

Got a new helmet and goggles (Sweet protection trooper MIPS and Giro Axis) for no real reason other than I wanted white and they look more cool than my green Giro Edit and Giro Onset combo.

Want some real piste skis. I’d like Rossignol Hero ST or Dynastar speedzone 14 or 16. But I’m still on the fence.

Otherwise I have to console myself with buying stuff for my son, where I can justify he needs it because he’s grown. Got him some Atomic Bent Chetler Mini skis, 155cm long with 90mm waist - think he’ll enjoy them. Need to buy some bindings for them. Mounting them will give me something to do.

@Themasterpiece, I got the speedzone 12's at 166 long (i'm 172cm 65kg) really liking them so far can't wait to give them a proper thrashing.

Nothing...

But that's because in 2017 had ski trip to Park City, Utah...

D@mn you, Jen's ski shop Laughing

1. Got Zipfits for my Atomic Hawx 120's - so now have achieved Ski Boot Nirvana.

2. Jen's also had demo Kastle... oh, the humanity. So now have ex demo MX89s - so that's ski plank nirvana.

3. While I was in the US, it seemed rude not to get a new replacement lens for my Smith I/O 7 goggles - the latest photochromic one, fabulous, and some oversize gloves/mittens for any future -30 degC skiing, and a bonkers lite Arcteryx down body warmer which packs into its own pocket... which with the dryguy neoprene boot covers I already had, should see me skiing (relatively) happily in mental east coast Canada style temps rather than hiding/staying warm in a cafe etc.

errr, that was it.
Mostly.

I need new ski trousers, my beloved Oakleys are ripped and worn out. Mehhhh. I love them so much.

I also would like some new goggles for sunny conditions and I'd realllllly like new skis but I don't need them.

I want some Volkls with super-grippy edges *sigh*

here's my original report on them... "the hype is true"

There is only one bad thing.
Sometimes I realise how many years I've wasted NOT having got them before... and the wasted money on other boots, foam liners (Sorefoot), and even an Intuition liner.

@Meltus, got a pair of them in April from freezepro. They’re great and I can’t wait to get back on them.

New gear for this season will be goggles - something that plays nicely with sweet igniter helmet. Otherwise virtually everything was replaced over the last season or this summer sales.

Just got Patagonia powslayer bibs in their website sale, fortunate to get a £200+ reduction. I like their kit, it fits me well and I like their values/ ethos but £500 rrp for salopettes is rather a lot...
