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 :-)

Rules are simple, photo has to be a whole multiple of years ago.

For example, 8 years ago today (Chartreuse mountains, France). Today there is no snow.

20th April 2016 4 years ago today. Vallons de la Selle, top of La Grave to St Christophe en Oisans. 45 minutes great snow and 2 hour walk out. The other 3 were all 20 years younger than me, 2 instructors and a physio. It was very hard work. Probably even worse now.

Just realised that there's more 'on this day' fun to be had...

in 2018, it started not to promisingly (on the quad chair at Nevis Range)...




but developed rather well on perfect spring snow in the back corries




and ended very well indeed!



And just so I don't get a reputation for being a fair-weather-only skier, in 2009 we did something in the clag from the Rotondohütte (near Andermatt)

I'm fairly sure this was taken between April 18 and 22 1994, at about 10:00. The required precision ought to result in a slight widening of the date range at that distance. I don't know for sure as it was Kodachrome and we hadn't quite worked out Exif. I think it's the top of Nevis Range, where there was about 15cm of fresh snow and no one except me out.

That's my track, to which I added a dozen more until it was properly ripped.


The down side was that the 15cm of fresh was the wettest snow I'd ever ridden - great for snowballs, not so great for covering the pink granite the stuff had fallen on.

I think I know the date reasonably accurately as I'd been constructively dismissed the Friday of the week before, and was taking advantage of the last
of the snow whilst my lawyers got their act together.

Yes, it was a green run. No, no one knew how she passed through the netting. Quantum physics I suspect.

By the way @davidof, this is a good game! Good excuse to trawl back through my photos (and thin out the collection at the same time!).
