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 :-)

Skiing archaeology

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
The oldest known ski relic in the world is a ski stick dated to 8,000bc, found near.......Scarborough Shocked

In those days, (before chairlifts), you could still ski across the North Sea to Scandinavia.......because the ice caps hadn’t melted sufficiently to fill in the North Sea.

So skiing isn’t as modern as we sometimes think. It’s also safely northern Toofy Grin

Sorry, but my ancient Nevica ski poles are probably Paleocene. They still have some mammoth hair caught in the grips. And I'm sure they're made from some pre-industrial metal. I've donated them to the British Museum in my will.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?
