Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

For most, this has been 'the season that never was'. Here on SnowHeads cabin fever is much in evidence. A thread about car hire has amassed 9 pages in 4 days, and the 20/21 thread, which seemed to have died back in April, has risen like a Phoenix and is roaring along once again.

I don’t venture into Apres, but I'm guessing it’s even worse in there Toofy Grin

yup.

Apres is a magnet for trolls too. The moment one gets bored there and bogs off, another one turns up from nowhere and it all starts over again.

Well, here's this: Heavenly/Kirkwood and Mammoth were terrific in April and May respectively. Typical excellent spring conditions in the beautiful Sierras. Sun all seven days, no lines, good snow although coverage was only average; all three areas were in their last week of operations. The May trip was different than all the others this season in that restaurants were somewhat reopened. I prefer a break from my own cooking so this was a welcome return to normalcy. Sadly, the on-hill food remains awful here, with the lone exception being a pretty good shrimp po-boy at Heavenly.

I skied all winter, (see the Jungfrau thread), but we were lucky in CH that (for better or worse) commercial interests were balanced with those of public health. I see that the 'Is Austria worth the extra money?' thread has hit 9 pages. I'm surprised that one wasn’t shut down with solid evidence that it's cheaper than France quite quickly (Austria is better value & cheaper guys - deal with it).

Also, surprised that our resident trolls / loonies / Covid deniers / Antivaxers / tinfoil hatters haven’t chipped in yet Very Happy Don't suppose it'll be long though.

@telford_mike, here I am!

Stop using the phrase "Covid-denier": the only type of 'denier' is a Holocaust-denier. Maybe you're too dim to see the link but stealing a particular word used for those who deny that millions of Jews were murdered (proven fact) to insult those who disagree with you (proven bellend) is a bit cheap.

Haha, whoosh!

I knew it wouldn’t be long before you turned up.
Welcome to the the troll bait thread. You just got reeled in. Knock yourself out!

Surprising, perhaps, that not a single poster on here has agreed with any of your views.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

and I hope they are not likely too either!

I had rather a nice season, bit of rando, bit of sneaky Swiss chairlifting, bit of nordic.

And a rather nice supper and a few drinks in the sun last night.

What's not to like?

Freedom of movement for those not living in the alps?

As for boredom? I made myself sick of amateur virology after one day, back to hunting slugs in the lettuce patch.

I never thought France would be shut for the February holidays. Maybe now is the time to look forward to next season and better times though rather than the last season?

For me it was good, freedom at work to organize my time as I wished. Next year, well now, it is back to the 9 to 6 but hopefully others will get a crack in 2021/22.

Happy to report being double jabbed, no restrictions on life and getting about 3 days a week on snow for the next few months.

Mostly as a result of decision makers paying attention to science.

As for boredom? I caught up a lot of molecular biology that I didn't have time to learn, refresh my rusty rarely used statistics, and learned some basic virology along the way! What's not to like? Smile

In additional to all the learning of modern day science, I got my mountain bike fixed, rode it a lot. Practiced skate skiing when there's thin snow nearby.

Along the way, I broke my ankle, learned a lot about ankle rehab as a result. Got into a minor car accident and learned a lot of the ins and outs of negotiating compensation.

Bored? I've been so busy, I wish I could find the time to be bored. I have to hope when winter of 21/22 comes, I can find time to ski!
