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 :-)

Freeride Junior World Championships

Unbelievable riding by the top 60 U18 riders from around the world in Verbier this morning.

Local hot shot Martin Bender pipped to the men’s ski prize by Max Palm, a Swede based in Les Arcs. His girlfriend Astrid Cheylus took the ladies title.

Given the thread title I thought it was going to be some video clips of your children showing you up Toofy Grin

The last picture reminds me of the time we shared the Saas-Fee main lift back in the day with most of the Swiss Womens race team (the Maria Walliser era). Two things stuck in my mind. The first was how small they all were, and secondly (and somewhat obviously) how fast they were, as in I didn't know you could ski that fast Shocked

@BobinCH, Max is son of Stefan and Pia Palm, who lived just along the road from us here in Serre in Villard Late (bottom of the Granon road), so La Grave was where he'd ski when it was too tame here, as Stefan had been a guide there for as long as Per and worked for Pelle at the Skiers Lodge.

They moved to Chamonix about six years ago.

Per As is his Godfather and Per told us a good couple of years ago that Max would make it.

Pia and Stefan have decamped to here http://abiskomountainlodge.se/skiing/heli-skiing/?lang=en

Kiwis, training in Whistler. Sounds expensive! Who pays for all their transport / accommodation costs for these events? Is it parents or sponsors / local ski associations etc?

A few years ago I was in the Jumbo after the FWT finale at Verbier.
There were three of the women athletes in the cabin and we got chatting...
"How did you guys get on today?" I asked
"Oh, it was good, in fact nobody ended up in hospital at all today, and nobody died, so today was a good day" one of them answered

That put it all in context!

Friend's son competed in the U16. Didn't quite stick his landing on last jump but got up and side-stepped (chuckle) / skied out. They seem to be made of rubber.

Yep excellent run. Here’s the GoPro and drone views (last 2 swipes)

Being critical, big backslap on the first 360 and Martin (in 2nd) did a much bigger and more original transfer air in the lower section. Hope they post his video up too

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.
