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 :-)

He’s going to stay “Assistant Travel Editor” (presumably one of dozens) a long time. If he thinks Brit offspring are badly behaved and indulged he should see the Dutch.

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

Apparently the quote and different formulations with the same meaning have quite a long history: https://quoteinvestigator.com/2014/07/13/truth/

I rather like Jonathan Swift's version from 1710 "Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it" Madeye-Smiley

Very curious from an ex Ski racer, Clifton College educated journalist, who used to deputy edit Ski and Board. Wonder how many of his Times readers enjoyed his stereotyping. Seems very odd to alienate half your readers!

Planet Ski has an article on his career but website currently down.

Pseudo satirical article from someone who probably does his fair share of being a Brit abroad himself.

There are times and places skiing where I'm embarassed to be British and specifically English. But then if I was Dutch, German, French or Australian I'd no doubt feel the same. And the best ever "bluffer duffer" chat came from a Saffer I evesdropped on the same chair while he regaled his impressionable party as to the gnarliness of all the runs he knew on the mountain before falling spectacularly on the exit ramp.

Just noticed that planetski.eu has changed to planetski.uk but android has that as unsafe!

@BobinCH, having witnessed those parties in Tignes, chavs and teen mum's is about right, luckily most of them were so drunk the R number was much lower than the actual chavs and teen mum's!

Bring back the days of vicars and tarts!

I believe this is a consequence of Brexit. .eu domains can only be used by .eu companies. Surprising the change was not made before...

The .EU suspension will kick in on the 31st of March officially, giving owners to either register their site on an EU based server and EU address, or the address will be placed onto the open market. Either way it'll be hard to claim ignorance of the change. The Unsafe bit will be the certificate not being updated yet.

And yet they had to cancel the Lauberhorn (or rather, worse, move the race to Austria?).
