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 :-)

Not going skiing? What'll you do with the savings?

It's a really good move, @holidayloverxx. Since I've retired (ages now.....) I've had a lot less need, or desire, to spend money on expensive travel - because life seems like a fairly permanent holiday.

Travel and holiday aren't the same thing though.

One can have a holiday without traveling too far. Or travel far while not on a holiday.

Some people like to travel. And if they can't do so at the employer's time and expense, which majority of people can't, they can only do so during their annual leave. Hence combining holiday with travel.

@abc, I don't want to travel as such...but I do want to spend more time than I will be allowed in Austria.

@abc, Since semi-retiring we like to travel, mainly working. Covid and Brexit have screwed that up, so we are having to look at UK based unconventional jobs to keep afloat.

My wife is shopping in Truro today and, by all accounts, making a pretty good job of blowing any savings before they materialise.

You know what they say - there are only two good days in one's life - the day you buy a boat and the day you sell it NehNeh Toofy Grin


I enjoyed my boat (and quite a lot of other things) till kids came along. Hated having to sell it.

Hold on to them just incase we have an economic meltdown as a result of Brexit and Covid. In the meantime I'll go out on my bike more and enjoy what I already have.

This!

That's what I've been doing so far. But I didn't really consciously decided to "hold on to them". Just my concern about the economy was a "demotivator" in spending them.

My ski fund remains untouched in the hope it can be spent. I have however been upgrading all my home cinema kit since the first lockdown. Found we’re watching a lot more films so that’s the justification. Also been overpaying on the mortgage.

The big thing about the lack of certainty this season is the lack of excitement and something to look forward to. Right now I’d be buzzing for the forthcoming ski trips.

Sunk it in a trip to Barbados to see my Dad (he lives there) - we go next Thursday!

(To be honest that is the saving from not skiing at Easter)

Only committed £43.50 for my share of the Tunnel for January so that won't go a long way!!

Downstairs loo redone and fitted with Japanese toilet - no longer concerned about the toilet roll hoarders

Patio for the lower back garden, two metal sheds and replaced side gates moved forward to this year and done.

Instead of a 4 person ski trip to Canada for new year Sad

@ski, very nice. It looks in excellent condition. What is it - an R80?

It appears some people spend a lot more money on ski holidays than I do. Perhaps the question should be what are you going to do with the time you are not squandering on skiiing and enjoying yourself?

Wow - that was going to be an expensive holiday! How are you liking the Japanese toilet? I'd like one of those.

Bought a share in 3 racehorses trained by my sister. Instead of 3 ski trips for 2. We all need a bit of excitement, especially in the current circumstances!
