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 :-)

FAFFING!

I know a few people who are masters of this art.

Can equally be applied to other activities that require certain specific elements of clothing and equipment.

“Making yellow snow”...what the chaps can do if the side of the piste when they’re caught short.

@queenie pretty please, you know there is no word in French vocabulary nor Swedish for "faffing".

Ski touring can add a whole new dimension to faffing in a skiing environment.

Indeed! Our regular touring group has evolved a system of faff cards. Each player is assigned one faff card per day. Anyone can call a stop by playing their faff card but they cannot play another on the same day. If something else needs doing they have to wait until someone else plays their card.

noch ein bier bitte. snowHead


If you are going to write about beer in German, you must pay attention to capitalisation of nouns.

Beer is very important to the Germans. They consider it a thing of purity. Water wheat and yeast. That's it. Pure and simple.
It is treated as a drink that is also food.

So it should be "Noch ein Bier bitte"

Wir sehen uns später!

Harscheisen
Harsch meaning rotten snow and ice.
Eisen meaning Irons.
A ski crampon for rotten snow. Many people think it's for climbing on skis on hard ice, but will soon find out to their cost that they don't work on ice.
Obviously, soft alloy plates won't penetrate ice and simply prop the ski off the surface, making the skins useless.
Skins work well on ice. But not on rotten collapsing snow.
That's when to dig out the harscheisen.
