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 :-)

Danger Skis?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Whilst watching the Eurosport coverage of the cancelled slalom at Val D'Isere this weekend I noticed a pisteur carrying his skis and on the bases in a floro yellow area near the tips was the word "DANGER" (or looked like it). I assume this is a new way to make sure that people seeing a pair or crossed skis then recognise what they mean, as I have come across a fair few who dont know this, rather than a brand of skis I hadnt heard of?

Floro yellow makes me think Fischer - could it just have been one of their Ranger models?

I have seen a Dynastar Mythic "pisteur" edition or similar with this in the base . I think its a contract edition.

@mishmash, it's possibly (?) as Dyna use the local pisteurs as beta testers. lucky beggers. not that I have liked Dynastar since the gold Course...

I think the Crows did something similar as well - I think the (French) pisteur must get an annual kit allowance so it might be a worthwhile market for specific targeting , probably a tax break etc ... there will be a "gilet jaune" ski soon sans doute...

Contract skis for piste patrol. Blackcrows have offered pisteurs the Orb or the Camox with DANGER on the bottom.

I'd be pretty sure they get skis provided for them. Tricky to do the job without them. In the day they used to get alpha and beta test versions from Rossignol and Dynastar, at least the folks in Morzine/Avoriaz did.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Yup these are the ones I saw.

I still like the idea of them being used with the DANGER graphic as a cross pair, works in French and English.

 You know it makes sense.

We got offered these for piste patrol, and had a professional user deal for a group buy (DANGER is on the bases):
