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 :-)

]D Goldsmith and G Aitken are most definitely not the same person. G Aitken is a long-standing and current member of Ski Club and its Council. D Goldsmith is neither. D Goldsmith was once a member of the Ski Cub but was evicted. I don't know the full circumstances but I think it was basically for persistently trying to bring the Club into disrepute by spreading falsehoods. Following his dismembership from the Ski Club, he set up Snowheads, where he posts, out of context and without permission, comments by SC members that he has lifted from this site and elsewhere. G Aitken's objection to D Goldsmith's presence on the FB site Ski Club Members and Council is that the site's name strongly implies that it is for members only and D Goldsmith is not a member. Worse, his main aim in life seems to be to destroy the Ski Club. I often disagree strongly with G Aitken's views but, on this, I am totally with him.


A few relevant factettes:

1. I joined the SCGB as a 9-year-old in 1962 and have been a member of the Club for most of the years since.
2. I was principal freelance contributor (as equipment editor and other capacities) to the SCGB's magazine for 10 years from 1983, and have written for six successive editors of that magazine from 1976 to 2003.
3. I've served on the SCGB's Council - elected by members at an annual general meeting.
4. It's absolutely untrue that anything critical written about the SCGB has had the motivation to "bring the Club into disrepute" - far from it: the objective was to ensure its rejuvenation and long-term health - and I've certainly not been involved in "spreading falsehoods".
5. In 2013 I was expelled from the SCGB, but not in compliance with its own rules. That expulsion is disputed.

If you've got this far, thank you for your attention and may your god go with you.

Without prejudice to any of the rest of this, the accusation that somebody is "bringing a club/institution into disrepute" is, in my recent experience, sometimes the last refuge of the scoundrels who are ACTUALLY bringing the Club into disrepute but who are in denial and mistake legitimate criticism for defamation. .

Do be fair it seems this Marcia Nash has a bit of a shaky grasp on history though if she agrees with neither Goldfish nor Gerry she can't be all bad.

I can also confirm that David had no hand in setting up snowHeads.
After I set it up, with a friend, I encouraged David to join as he had been such a prolific and interesting poster on the old SCGB forum, from which most of us had just been summarily evicted. Gerry became a snowHead of his own volition a couple of days later.

It is not (nor has it ever been) true that snowHeads is intrinsically anti-SCGB. After all, a significant number of snowHeads are also enthusiastic SCGB members. Opinions pro, anti or ambivalent toward the SCGB are all equally welcome here.

Ironically Marcia Nash appears to be "trying to bring snowHeads into disrepute by spreading falsehoods" rolling eyes

That has to be a gag post, surely. Surely he can't be castigating such a ghastly site for insulting each other, while throwing around snidey insults himself?

Must be a hard thing to see your relevance diminish, which applies to both DG and the ski club. The ski club shot itself in the foot with both barrels, Admin seized the opportunity, the rest is, apparently never ending, history.

I thought that - either the guy is the very cariacture of the pompous SCGB "cut above the peasants" type we are assured does not exist or that is deeply laced with sarcasm from someone active on sHs.

I have been reading the FB site' Ski Club of Great Britain : Members and Council' for several weeks ,good few ideas ,good discussion but then something dreadful happened . For many months G Aitken had blocked me from seeing any of his FB posts, which was great by me, but suddenly out of nowhere two days ago he unblocked me and I could see his awful posts.
