Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Skied with Candide yesterday

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I say skied with him....He scared the life out of me when he absolutely (and this is not a term that often finds itself in my vocabulary) SENT IT off a lip at La Balme at 100mph about 2 metres away from me. Jaws on the floor all over the shop.

He proceeded the scream towards the lift line at mach 3 and I was convinced he was going to kill someone but he just made it all look effortless. If it were anyone else I'd have said they were skiing completely irresponsibly but....its Candide.

Takeaways:

I've never seen someone ski that fast in real life, even living in Chamonix.
I've never seen someone make skiing look that easy
It's nice that the big boys still make time for skiing for fun.
In Candide's world, turning is for the weak


Anyway, it was kind of inspiring!

 Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person

I saw him sent that superpark tabletop at Mammoth many years ago before I even knew who he was. And he was just a kid then.

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

Other skiers can do what he does but NOBODY makes it look as effortless.
He is absolutely beautiful to watch....

That was a moment. Must’ve been incredible seeing it for real. I remember that segment in Ski Movie III - ‘when Candide started hitting the big table straight on, everything else just stopped’

Pretty cool stuff - and all in a woolly hat, too.
