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 :-)

Congrats for the L1 pass swskier!

The BASI SNB L4 was French compliant as it had the FIS points as part of the qualif. The French also had a snowboard "eurotest" slalom. Again all unnecessary, in theory, under the EU 2005 act.



This is the weird bit. The BASI SNB L4 still has FIS points in it, but is now no longer recognised. Nothing changed - the French weren't forced to hand out carte pros for it before Brexit - they did out of the goodness of their own hearts. I guess once they realised that there was no way to circumvent the Carte Pro requirement for Brits any more they immediately shut it down.

Now the BASI L4 has FIS points in it that serve absolutely no purpose - you don't need FIS points for an ISTD. Word on the street is that they'll be ditched, which would make completing a BASI L4 SNB much more attractive - no more travelling Europe for a year to prove a point.

IASI got back to me the other day and nobody's tried to use an IASI SNB 4 in France yet. No reason why it shouldn't be able to be forced through like a Swiss or German cert, but the precedent is not yet there. Be another load off the mind of any snowboarders who can get hold of an EU passport when that precedent is established - a de-facto route into France taught 100% in English.

@AdamNotts, thank you.

Out of interest, does anyone know much about the Spanish Seasonal Worker visa?

I'm tempted to do my L2 in Baqueira to try and make contacts if it's possible to get a seasonal visa out there.

@skimottaret, that was who I was intending on making contacts with whilst doing my L2. I'll drop him a line beforehand anyway.
