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 :-)

Ski & board show for buying stuff ?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi Folks , heading to the ski show at last this year, wanted to go for years but always been to busy.

Anyone have experience of actually buying gear there , or is it more to check out new products etc ?

I'm after new touring skis and bindings and maybe boots if I go for pin bindings. I see you can book a boot fitting slot so obviously boots are available.

Are certain days better than others, Thursday looking best for us (first day) although i guess better discounts on the last day maybe, or sold out ? !Any advice appreciated

Thanks Dave

I've been to one day last year and it was not that much of shopping, a lot of holiday operators and countries marketing their resorts, there was decathlon, snow and rock, one or two stores selling skis/boots and clothing but not that much variety to be fair.

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

Agree with Gustavobs. There is the odd deal to be had on last years kit from a few Indys but wouldn't expect much discount from the likes of the snow and rock etc. They will just put boots etc back into stock if they don't sell it during the show.

@scarbski, just a promo-show. Better value elsewhere.

Am not sure about touring skis/bindings but I think Finches are usually there, with skis and boots. I also recall decent deals on backpacks one year. There also some smaller clothing brands about. But really not a great deal of kit. Best thing to di is check out the list of exhibitors on the shows website and give them a call to see what they might be bringing.

Useless for touring gear. Better calling spyderjon and get him to put together a package for you - you'll get more discount and better advice.

Looks like we will treat the show as a day out with a bit of fact finding and then call and see Jon at the Piste Office.
