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 :-)

Worth keeping an eye o TK Maxx
They had Level brand gloves last season for a 3rd of the retail price

Got myself a goretex pair in there last year for £20.

Also got a pair of Atomic Vantage 100cti with Marker F10s at an absolute steal from Sport Bittl to replace my nearly 10 year old Rossi S5 all rounders.

They say "adjustable keyboard stand", I say "fold-away sky servicing bench". Pleasingly stable and much better balanced than the "plank of wood on a workmate" bench I was using before, which anted to tip when you were trying to scrape the ends of the skis.

Maaaaybe also the new Full Tilt tech boot, or similar Dalbellos (fell in love with the 3-piece flex last season).


I got sick of waiting for the full tilts to come out so bought some dalbellos. They are really nice but I wish I'd bought the classic, narrower (98mm?) last rather than the new one. Totally my fault - couldn't find a convenient stockist so bought off t'internet. They still ski well but I'm using a pair of chunky wrap intuition liners that I already had for lift served days for a bit of extra performance.

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.


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.


Yes, really heavy discount across the lot hence why I spent so much; it seemed crazy to wait for 18/19 winter to replace even though still a few months before they'll all get worn. About 30%+ on average.

I got a set of proper ski vices for my anniversary present. Looking forward to using them soon instead of rigging up all sorts of stuff to try and achieve the same.

@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 .......

Scarlet, I've just booked a few days break in Sept before for the winter season kicks off again in Oct - thanks for paying for it for me x

Err, no probs Laughing

I've just sharpened the edges up to 87° and am waiting for the wax to cool. Should a flake of snow hit this fine city (probably not just yet, it's still 30°C), they'll be ready to rock Cool

Incidentally, I'm not sure what the “3D” stickers they're festooned with are all about. They'd be rubbish if they were 2D.

I did message Stellar mid July asking if they are releasing any new colours for their shell jacket and trousers. They said yes in about a month. But didn’t reveal what colours. I’m waiting to see...

No new hardwear (and trying to keep it that way...) but a new Norrona jacket and pants and some Oakley shades at the end of last season. A few new pieces I can use as midlayers too.

Ditto. I bought keyboard music stand to make a servicing bench. Adjustable height and width. Rock solid. Can tune the edges as well.

If I had enough money to buy lots of new gear, I'd spend it on going to another Bash, instead of just the BB. Confused

Having said that; I do like the look of the new Rossi Experience 88 Ti's, and Sail and Ski do interest free credit. Twisted Evil

Hmmm, I might see if there is a pair I can test at Oktobertest North first. Toofy Grin

Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person
Everyone bar son got a pair of nearly new skis this year , we dont ski enough to warrant buying new and happy enough for someone else to take the deprecation from new. Keen to try out the pair of Supershape i.Magnums this year. Son got a pair last year but at the rate he is growing they will be too short , oh well just consider them slalom length now, as will his jacket and salopettes. Luckily I have been keeping an eye out for a bargain and snagged a pair of fetching orange salopettes that better matched my jacket to be given to me for my birthday - "what a surprise, its exactly what I wanted/needed!" - so he can inherit my worn once salopettes from last year, bought on spec but which didnt really match the jacket, if he wants a pair that finish below the tops of his boots. Beggars can't be choosers! Just need to sort out a jacket for him and hope the other one doesnt grow as fast to at least get 2 seasons from each bit of clothing.

Oh and had to buy him some snow boots, he now wears shoes as big or bigger than mine. Stop growing! But at least if I can wear them too I dont mind spending more on them so got some Sorels.

Good spot, One of my Sidas batteries has packed up (for the second time, but now out of warranty) and I was looking for a replacement battery, but actually cheaper to buy the Thermics on this offer. I even managed to resist the temptation to buy the gadget to charge my phone from them. Thanks for the tip off.
In other news, if anyone needs one spare Sidas Pro battery I can cut you a deal Wink

I'll also be looking at Musto, when they release their 2019 ski range. Stellar looks good and I've seen a few people wearing it last season. The new fabrics sound good, I'm just reluctant to move away from the proven properties of Goretex.

Shifts coming from @Spyderjon's preorder list mean I need new boots. @CEM has just squeezed my feet into a pair of Atomic Hawx Ultra XTDs small enough to properly hold my skinny chicken heels. Will be Very Happy once my toes recover from the torture needed to make enough room at the front Shocked

Getting a new 4wd next year, which is the only way to realistically get to a ski field for me. Kids will have all moved on by then, so don't need a big one, and have put my name down for the new Jimny when it goes on sale.

I should probably get a new Airbag as mine is now 12 years old. As with a lot of things these days (inc Airbags, mountainbikes, cars, touring skins etc) technology moves on so fast that I'm overwhelmed by the options and end up procrastinating. (...….. goes off to find airbag threads.)

It's a Nevica, £50 from sports direct (I think) I got salopettes for £20, both at 80% discount but I think the salopettes might be too warm.

Late to the party...

What do I NEED? Time to use all the skis I've got.

What have I gotten? More skis (because a mate is moving) that I haven't got enough time to use! rolling eyes

Truth being, I could use a pair of new boots. But that's a fairly long and involved process, to have them fitted, mod'ed if need be, break in... So I've been procrastinating in getting that "process" started...
