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 :-)

Hmm. The City on a weekend? Talk about your budget off-season!

They sold the White House off a few years back I think - probably when the council issued them all those 'cease and desist' notices about the overgrown pampas grasses out the front...

Not the old Wimbledon White House, I was referring to this White Haus

https://www.thewhitehaus.co.uk/about/

Which is supposed to be supported by SCGB (or its marketed that way anyway) so odd that SCGB are not supporting it in this case by having a function there on what would be a quiet night for it.

Could be, I wonder how many they are expecting.

Though White Haus is a decent size being spread over 3 floors as I recall from a couple of visits but maybe not the 300 the proposed venue says it can hold.

You'll never get this straight. You've held a deep hatred for the Ski Club and its members since a groups of them didn't want you to go with them on your board as they all felt you would have held them up or compromised the choice of off-piste terrain.

It's not 'become the orthodox' it's simply always been like that since day one particularly for some of the original members here.

That's interesting, my first interaction with the SCGB was 'almost' that. I was a full time boarder at that time and (blowing a perhaps over large trumpet), was halfway decent at sliding . . . However, the SCGB rep I engaged in conversation with was dismissive to the point of gross insult regarding the sport of snowboarding . . . That wasn't you was it?

I don't hate the SCGB, I can't even hate the ex-wife who was sleeping with her supervisor rolling eyes I do have a deep loathing for the indolent, insouciance the SCGB exercises towards those that actually get out there and challenge themselves in a hostile environment. @Gerry, you don't represent any of us and the last thing you should ever be is a representative of the SCGB.

This topic has been widely covered for many years and there are 3 factors at play:

1. SH was born out of SCGB conflict. Being a hater is a tradition.
2. Class wars. Rich (SCGB) vs. poor (SH).
3. Brits love to drag down successful folk.

I think you'll find it's the SKGB like wearing uniforms and wristbands wink More seriously though there are plenty of nice SCGB members and "representatives" most of us would be delighted to ski with. There are also some utter tools. Snowheads isn't necessarily any different although the tools tend not to be elevated to positions of great authority.

No, it wasn't me. You being on a board would have made no difference to me but I'm pretty sure I would have worked out what you are within a few minutes and told you to get lost as well.

This is of course one of the fabrications that gets told again and again. The truth is that the Ski Club is a diverse as snowHeads.

The student membership thing is under a different brand called Line-S or something. All to do with the Ski Club and university ski clubs collaborating. That 27,000 I quote is made up of single and family memberships.

Seems a strange strategy, allow non-members but specifically write:
"Tickets are £10 per member" and "Please note this is a ticketed , member only event and you will be required to show your ticket & ski club membership upon arrival at the venue."

I've never really understood the Ski Club/sH rivalry (in terms of members siding on one or the other), although having discovered Snowheads first I've never felt the need to follow up on Club membership. As an online community sH is definitely more visible, whenever I was googling questions about skiing when I first took it up, this site was always the one to bring up the answers.

certain individuals (Gerry/Gotama86/...) insist on ensuring that it's not consigned to history, and have to remind everyone that we're sposed to still hate them for being evicted. I don't. I just loathe specific individuals, some of whom I've never even met. and I am one of the evictees and signed up on sH in week #1.
most sH are either a scgb member too, or just couldn't give 2 hoots.

The truth is that no one was deliberately evicted. What happened was the ski club were worried about being sued via libelous comments in the chat forum and decided they wanted the full details of anyone posting. They felt the best why to get these details was to ask everyone to join. Unfortunately the CEO made a complete balls up by closing to non members without notifying people first.
