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 :-)

Do you know SNOOC?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Have you already tested [link removed - your choice whether to Google it]? I saw people do it last year in La Plagne. As this year I'm going skiing with friends who don't ski, I tell myself that it's ideal for a good afternoon.

It seems very practical to me and above all everyone can have fun.

Have you ever had experience with SNOOC?

Not spam but you manage to embed a link in your first ever post and include Snooc in your username? Remarkable co-incidence.

Anyway as for a recommendation I googled it found it through the Chamonet website to avoid your link. Looks like a shitty overpriced and possibly dangerous product that absolutely no one was asking for. So my recommendation if you can't ski is rent or buy yourself a toboggan.

All of the downsides of tobogganing (Boots full of wet snow, poor control) with the added danger of doing some damage to your dangly bits on the stick if you come a cropper. AND because you're leashed to it, it can come back and smack you in the head. Sounds ideal.

Maybe you should try a different franchise?

Clear spam.

But also - that looks horrendous! So you have to hold your legs up in the air most of the time to slide, then jam them into the snow to stop? Sounds both exhausting and dangerous. I'm not going anywhere near anyone using one of those.

And OMG, what a phaff to assemble it after you've skinned up. And why would you bother?! Given the skinny nature, and low seat, it's clearly not designed for powder - so why would you use it for touring anywhere in the first place?

That is grossly unfair to 'Tom from Austria', at least he engaged with other sHs in an open transparent manner about the product he was developing and trying to promote.

It must be Toms, whatever happened to Tom from Austria and his strange Rax Skis? I saw him skiing on them here once, about 10 years ago or so I guess.

Not sure it's doing anything to defy "laws of aeronautics". Surely it's exactly following them generating a mild amount of lift when properly positioned.

Looks ok on a totally empty piste, pointless if not. Yep kids going into a ski store would definitely run to the things that look like discarded bin liners and beg mummy and daddy for them.

Many years ago I saw a group of skier unfurling what looked like 'wings' at the top of a piste. As they descended they looked like a group of beautiful butterflies, somthing I have never forgotten.... Smile

SNOOC looks like an efficient way of making a relaxing green piste into something terrifying. To steal from the great Viv Stanshall a novel way to commit suicide.

It's because you posted that you had seen some people using it in La Plagne, it seemed like a good idea to you for your friends who don't ski, and were asking people if they had experience of it. This was your first post on the forum, and particularly because of your link to the promotional website and the incorporation of snooc into your username it looked very much like you were pushing a commercial product in which you may have a commercial interest. If you can confirm that you have absolutely no commercial interest or connection with the product then I'm sure suspicions of spam will be dispelled. Madeye-Smiley

@tom[blah]ski, feedback for what purpose?

And if all you want is feedback, why do you keep trying to post a link to the product website?

It's likely very few people have tried it. So in the absence of those people surely some thoughts as to why people wouldn't want to try it, and their general opinions on the product are useful - whether you are involved in it's production, or thinking of buying one yourself.

Not hate, just some feedback from someone who hasn't used one and has no intention of it. I also have no intention of suggesting it as an option to any of my non-skiing friends, mainly because it looks like a slightly more efficient way of injuring yourself than skiing is (and given the number of Snowheads who have stories about how they f***their knee(s) up, skiing is already quite efficient).

And the reason you get such cynical responses is, as per the above, because you insist on posting a link every time you mention the product. That's not normal, it's not what people do UNLESS they're looking to promote the product. Same goes for including the name of the product in the username, people might do that if they've used something, but they don't do it if they're merely inquisitive about it.
