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 :-)

Not going skiing? What'll you do with the savings?

@VolklAttivaS5, wrote on another thread that she'll be saving a fortune, not going skiing this coming season. She won't be the only one. So? Splash out on something else? Or save for a rainy (or snowy) day?

@pam w, nice thread! snowHead

My answer? Not decided yet.

Or rather, I haven't quite thought about it just yet.

I'm slightly (ok, more than just slightly) concerned about the economical fall out. So perhaps the most prudent thing to do is save it for a rainy day.

I have, however, bought a few items slatted for later purchase, they are now being "fast forward"! Smile Also a few odd items that are maybe of questionable value, and I normally wouldn't have spend money on... Not the bulk of money saved, not even close. But it's the direction of that being a pool of "extra fund"... Embarassed

BTW, my savings are not just from not skiing, it's all the other things I'm not doing: eating out, concerts/theatres, staying in swanky places being pampered... Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

Was planning a trip to Canada, used the money for 9 heli ski days locally, a new touring setup and some back country training. It was awesome, and I think I'll carry on doing that instead of going overseas.

Paying off the mortgage as I'm imagining 20 years of monthly mortage payments being diverted into future ski trips instead of paying the mortgage Wink

Thinking of doubling down and booking locum work in the time when I would normally be skiing so I earn my usual salary, save the cost of the ski trip and earn more than my usual salary on the overtime Shocked

Well some of it is going on comfort purchases but most of it will stay in the ski holiday fund: they may be more expensive anyway after all this but there some destinations on my wish list - Greenland at the top - that need bigger funds.

So a couple of extra-exciting trips eventually, plus some single supplements as a treat Madeye-Smiley

Depends on what happens in England and Scotland, and if that turns out to be feasible, if season tickets can be and are bought there, if many, many trips and overnight accommodations can be accomplished and thus paid for, etc, etc.
Otherwise, saving it up so that my hoped-for many multi-week Europe snow trips can start to happen in future years. Or maybe more summer trips?
Realistically, well probably still hope to do that anyway: but since an awful lot of my everyday food and household bills have gone up considerably, my meagre income from invested cash and shares has all but gone to zero and I am now the proud sole 'employer' of a stay-at-home handyman, chauffeur, gardener and butlering factotum, I'm not sure that there's much saved at all Sad

I did indeed comment on another thread that I will save a lot of money not going skiing this winter. I’m going to put it towards 2021/2022 and do more then (assuming things are in a better state by then).
Plus I’ve plenty to be getting on with here in the UK as I’m usually hardly ever home. So for me that will be quite nice for a change.

Going skiing in Sweden instead of France first week of December. Bit gutted as it would have been girlfriends first time in the Alps. I guess we’ll save some money once refunds are processed.

Will maybe spend the money on a new tent and hot tent camping stove, throw it in the car and give it a try when in the Swedish mountains.

I'll probably spend most of it on new ski kit that I don't need, Stroh 80 rum and fast women. Then I'll just waste the rest on something unimportant.

I already had a new jacket in March (worn once rolling eyes ), but I should probably pick some skis to fasten to the bindings sitting in @spyderjon's cupboard. Need to test some first though, so I'll sit on the cash for now as I have no idea if/when that will happen.

Soooo.... new bike new bike new bike new bike... need to get my order in if I want it for spring as there's a 5 month lead right now Shocked although I'm gonna start with a gravel bike first and the fully can be n+1 Toofy Grin

I've ordered a turbo trainer to spend more time on my bike over the winter.

Some will go into the family holiday pot for whenever we are next able to do a family holiday.

Spending more time at home means I'm more aware than ever that the house is looking scruffy and needs some TLC and a bit of money spent on it.

Missed last season due to a bust leg, now it looks like this season will not run have started to spend money in outdoor shops. The kind of stuff you normally see on the rails and think “I’d rather like that, but I don’t really need it.” Well now I can justify it.
