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 :-)

Now laughably late + a laughable week.

The Interim Chairman's report is now laughably late ... Here's a bit of a non-update. Last weekend I was told that the report was written and "just being proof read", which, somewhat naively, I took to mean the publication was imminent - but I suspect "proof read" was code for "it's with the lawyers".


That is a viable conclusion. The other is that the report has been fed to the family dog.

My own theory is that publication of the report is now being further delayed (to August?) to coincide with an announcement of the SCGB's 2020 AGM, or maybe even delayed further (to October?) to accompany the 2019-20 annual report and accounts. Constitutionally (as I recall) the Club has to give notice (3 months?) of the AGM date and should properly invite members to put themselves forward for election to the board/council.


As it is the end of the month I thought I'd chime in to say that it is now 4 months since the CEO left, the Chairman's report on the whole omnishambles is now a full 3 months late and the proof reading of said report has so far taken 3 weeks. I think Tolstoy had War & Peace proof read in considerably less time. Any mentions of all this on 'the other forum' are being met with silence.

That is a good point about the announcing of the AGM and giving sufficient notice. I would think that time must be right on top of us so, if there is ever to be a report, it will surely have to be published very soon.


Other chatterings to report - general consensus is that Fresh Tracks hols are now really over priced when compared to other 'equivalents' on the market who have managed to hold prices in line with last year. Why then can't the Ski Club? I think the answer there is that it's all about overheads being far too large. Some will pay the price without a second glance but many others (I fear too many) will shop around.

Sadly you may not be able to while you are "down a crevasse" - I think this means admin hasn't got a valid email address for you, something you may wish to correct. snowHead

@Alastair Pink, Woooosh. I don't want to go on a bash or a Fresh Tracks holiday any more for that matter. Out of the two though, a bash looks more appealing. Being down a crevasse happened by accident but I quickly realised it is actually a good thing and I'm happy to keep it that way otherwise I'd spend too much time on here I think.

Meanwhile I had an email from someone earlier today telling me that the Ski Club Chairman's long overdue 'name and shame' report has been with the Club's solicitors since last Tuesday 21st July. It must be close to the bone if it needs to be sense checked like that. To me it just exposes the club to more expense and ridicule. Just because the legal opinion is that something is OK to publish, does not stop someone named and shamed from taking action. It's like rubber-necking a car crash - you can't help having a look but you wish you hadn't had to.
