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 :-)

" Cable car sway"

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
That's my name for it...
Inspired by the "ski sickness" post, I often find myself, usually at altitude resorts, suffering from a very definite side to side loss of balance, inability to stand without a bit of sway, dizziness, etc. Not to do with visibility or dehydration, alcohol or any known physical problem. No nausea. Usually comes on at the end of the day, waiting at the bus stop, usually gone next morning (till comes back). Doesn't affect skiing ability, and I don't think that I get it snowboarding, either. (Edit - yes I do get it snowboarding; or else just Day 2...)
My personal version is that it means I've been skiing well, side to side to side to side to..... Etc.
Anyone else get this?

Start of altitude sickness - lack of oxygen. I get this if I go to the top of French resorts too much.

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

Nothing to do with altitude IMO. Your brain/balance adapts to constant movement skiing, then when you're stationary gets confused. Same as getting off a boat but feeling like the ground's moving or cycling all day and feeling like you're still pedaling that night or feeling like a train is moving backwards when it's stops at a station.

I only get the similar feeling with skiing when it's a visibility thing and in everyday life I get regular bouts of vertigo that I take tablets for to treat the associated nausea.

But I have experienced it on a treadmill or I should say getting off one. It was at the leisure centre gym and it was horrible, I felt such a berk. I had to keep my knees bent to avoid falling over but it did subside after a couple of mortifying minutes leaning against the wall. My brain was convinced the ground must still be moving under me and I just couldn't get the rest of me to disagree. Would having a quiet lie down sort it out or does it always need a full night's rest?

@adithorp, I get that when I’ve been on boats and also when I went to the US when I was 15 and using lots of lifts the ground felt like it was going up and down. Weird feeling but I’m sure you’re right about the cause.

@adithorp, I get it after spending 12 hours in the pub, when I emerge into the world again it's all a bit fuzzy and wobbly.

Stating the obvious here, but are you sure you're not just tired / low blood sugar?

It's not glucose/hydration in my case, no (though the grump factor I can definitrly identify with, for me and Mr G).
I suspect maybe more movement related, maybe vestibular sensory related (or just minorly glued-up ears, which I seem to get more as I get older)
