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 :-)

Pig vs Ski Tourer

After bears, it is the attack of the pigs

Reminds me of the joke:
A man is driving down the road when he hears a woman shouting "Pig!" at him from the pavement
He shouts back "cow!" to her
Then he hits a pig in the road.

Dare I say it is a metaphore for Brexit where the Brexit voter (the pig) blames the innocent bystander for his own stupidity. Very Happy

Laughing Those poor kids !!

They can be angry little bugs though... I was out hiking up at the top of the Tabuc valley here during the first lockdown last March (shhh..). Just came out of the tree line and must have disturbed one... it charged straight out aiming for my poor dog, who was only a puppy age 1 at the time. Fortunately I was carrying a big larch stick to keep my balance in the snow, so the boar got a whack on the back and promptly disappeared off down the mountain... dunno who was shaking more, me or the dog !!

Maybe he wasn't expecting to have some dumb human break his tumble then scream a lot. New market niche in sanglier repellent for the concerned tourer, pepper spray maybe to season it nicely before it goes on the spit?

That is brilliant, the way it was almost somersaulting down, must have been pretty damn steep for it to lose its footing and then tumble down like that.

We have them at the back of us, and there's one ski tour I do ( @sucette, above Le Freyssinet ) where I've seen a family of them, as very few people ever go up that side and in deep snow, there are whole corridors of paths in the snow from one tree to another, I'll take some photos, and again like @sucette, in the first lockdown one shot out of the bushes and our two Jacks gave chase, but I don't think they realised what they were chasing, it's happened quite a few times now and we lose them for quite a while in the forest and when they do turn up they're shattered from the speed of the chase, and like I say if they actually knew what they are chasing as Beanie is scared witless of any black dog!

funny animals. Cats will chase brown bears but will sometimes run away from smaller cats.

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:
Went up behind me today and as ever loads of beastie tracks but not so impressive as snow depth not that great, but right at the end a couple broke cover.

I'll upload the video where you get a fleeting glimpse of them, in a couple of mins to the ski-touing lines thread.
