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 :-)

Anyone bought anything exciting for this season?

I've not availed myself of many of these brands personally as it's most yoof/snowBoardy stuff but these prices look rather keen...

Burton's sale has started and at £28, a Sonar Green lens for my Anon M3 goggles was too good to resist.

However, the next day, I got an email saying the item was "out of stock" and so I'd be refunded.

Strange because the lens is clearly still available on their site, only now it costs £42: LINK

Really disappointed by the blatant lie without the decency to own the fact they're not honouring the price it was advertised at.

This is after waiting two months for some laces I ordered before Brexit which never turned up.

Be warned if trying to buy anything from Burton's supposedly UK website.

@jebroni3_16,

amazon is a good place to look for Burton stuff
I got the missus a snowboard bag (burton) for £12 & knee pads for just over £12 - the bag is now showing as £38 & pads as £22!
I have burton baselayer bottoms sitting in my wishlist for £13 but not decided if I want. another baselayer or not yet!

Just take care with clothing, as sometimes kids stuff ends up in adults!


Give Burton a call, they have always been brilliant to deal with in my experience.

@Mr.Egg, As someone who, like me, lives in South Wales I've always had a lot of respect for you. But now I learn that you're a boarder!

I have a twisted tibia, so one foot has a natural out-turn, hence skiing is not possible... but gives me a nice natural stance on the board snowHead

All is forgiven. Skied with someone once who's feet were turned out to the extent that he had never been able to snowplough. And there are times when a snowplough comes in pretty handy.

As a sneaky "just for info" I have a black m3 lens and an mfi facemask I'm looking to shift cheap if you're interested ?

I contacted them via email @Mr.Egg and they claimed that post-Brexit, the website is incorrectly showing stock from a warehouse that no longer supplies the UK.

My response was to say that I suspected if I ordered it at £42, that it would turn up and what they said sounded like a lie to cover up the initial lie.

Will see what their response is to that.

no problems ordering from Burton post brexit. They even emailed that in case there was an import duty to pay to email them back with order number and they would cover it. So far no duty to pay. Fantastic service imv.

Was buying quite often from absolute-snow, will no longer do that after brexit. 7,5% tax and 21% vat makes no sense buying from them. Will start buying from freshfarm.it again.

Back at chill factor with junior and his snowboard. First he had been on it for over a year. (Has been on the plastic with the race skis) but time to get the single plank back out. Needless to say growth spurt and the 120cm board was looking like a skateboard. So new 134 cm Burton Process smalls board and mission bindings purchased today.

4 weeks snow permitting for me to get up a hill.

Picking up a pre ordered yes optimistic 161 this week, got some 70% off union ultra fc’s to go on it.

Also got some new spark surge bindings for my splitboard. Picked them up cheap in summer and sold the old fairly knackered ones for $100 less than the new ones cost. Cheaper than replacing the straps.

Excited. Been a long hot 8 months of summer. Frosty mornings and the odd bit of snow are building happiness levels Happy

So the surf has gone fully flat and the new (surf)board is curing. Winter is coming and the sales are on, so a Rome Ravine Select 162 is waiting for me in Blighty. Good reviews and it sounds like my kind of board, good discount too, so I'll probably not lose too much if I have to shift it on again. Cool

The flat spell continues and so does the damage to my credit card. New board means new leash and whilst I was on the site they had some reduced Volcom Goretex snowboard 'pants'. Seemed rude not to, and the same with the Patagucci board shorts.

Please let there be waves soon. Gloves next on my "I could really do with some............." list. I'm loath to look at the state of my boots and bindings.

A new Jones Hovercraft for me. I liked @freeridechef, old 2012 so much I thought I'd treat myself when I saw a fresh 156 come up cheap.

@rogg, I'm pretty sure I need new boots too Laughing

Shortly before Covid kicked in, I treated myself to a Sandy Shapes Magnifica 157cm Swallowtail. Needless to say I've not had a chance to ride it yet, but this Winter can't come quick enough.
