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 :-)

And, in my opinion, the top apres anthem.

Agreed. Well, I do listen to recorded music, but hate having it piped straight into my head, whether on the slopes or not.

I like to be able to hear everything around me on the slopes, I don't trust anyone not to crash in to me (although I often hear songs and think "that would be great to ski to")

Can this not be turned into a thread of people that don’t listen to music telling everyone that they don’t listen to music? Although I agree about the dickheads that seem to think everyone else wants to hear their shite europoo.

I love this one for when I need to relax a bit

I don't listen to music while skiing Toofy Grin

If I did it would likely be hip hop, UK rap and house/dance. Not sure people would like my choices given other clips posted so far!

@Bennisboy, are they the same tools that sit in groups right in the middle of the piste, usually at the crest of a steep bit?

@Bennisboy, you haven’t shared a flat with DotM then! One day was a 90s hip hop wake up, the next was a reggae breakfast etc etc.

If I was to listen to music while skiing it would probably be stuff like the below. Weird thing is it's not even my favourite kind for day to day listening, I just feel like it goes well with laying out some nice turns (Apparently the creator of the first video feels the same way! Never seen the video for it before so that's a coincidence!). You need to get at least a minute into each of them for the full song to really kick in

I’m another one who doesn’t listen to anything as I ski. However, as Mr P Junior is always on the lookout for new tunes for his freeski films, I still take a keen interest in music. This weird little ditty was spotted by me...it takes a bit of time to warm up, but I think it’s great Very Happy . And I can certainly imagine this in my head as I bounce down some fresh powder (but without the cliff drops and backflips!). The artist is called Cosmo Sheldrake.

Living where I do, it can be a similar problem with 'music' blasting out of open car windows. Twisted Evil

This is my playlist for when I'm driving to the Alps, the tunes that are running through my head* when I'm carving beautiful corduroy pistes, and my favourite playlist for getting through a boring afternoon at work.

*I don't actually listen to music when I'm riding, I just seem to suffer from almost constant 'earworms'.
