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 :-)

Watching the Lauberhorn made me feel very nostalgic. Loved skiing in Wengen. Visuall imparted Super G successes were mentioned. It would have been good to have seen them in action.

Did he say snowploughing "like a beginner"?

I heard he him "snowplough" and in full commentary on Eurosport he explained a "power plough", touched on by Mr Bell on Ski Sunday.

Did I miss it?

We have had rounds of the disabled world cup here many times, seeing the visually impaired showing 'blind faith' in their guide while following a noise is something else. When I bring intermediates down the Super G course they can't believe it is possible for visually impaired people to get down the slope never mind race down it.

The only benefit to listening to Nick oh oh oh can you believe it Fellows is that he might just choke himself to death live on air screaming about Shiffrin. You certainly don't listen to him for his pronunciations or any insights relating to the actual race as his tune changes all the time as he cannot remember what his been rabbiting on about previously. I do not know how Ed Drake puts up with the blithering biased idiot.


Oh he is so painful to listen to, I do put on mute when she wins like tonight, it's great when she is beat Smile


She's creating history with the fantastic wins, great that she has found her best skiing again after her Father's tragic accident. We are in an era of really good women skiers, Soffia Goggia, Petra Vlhova and Mikaela try and appreciate

Thought the coverage of Wengen DH was good, I enjoyed the run by Graham Bell especially and great to see Austria triumph in front of the Swiss crowd, thought their booing was bad and it was great to see them hushed. The rest of the snowboarding slopestyle and halfpipe I find really boring and of zero interest. I'm sure it is great for the yoof watching but I think they ought to re-title the programme, its not a ski programme anymore, there's so much more they could do with this but i'll not go there again! wink

Speaking as a 47yo Yoof, I thoroughly enjoyed the Laax coverage (although Jenny Jones overdub of bits showed her lack of broadcast experience - don't read off the paper; read it, then repeat it!). Nice to hear Bell dust off his old "HIS THIGHS ARE SCREAMING" patter again for Lauberhorn, like you can guarantee him going on about decibels at the Schladming night slalom...

@Mike Pow, assume you'll be wanting your RADA card now.

@Markymark29, wasn't the swiss fans booing because Vincent Kriechmayr was racing even though he had tested positive for covid, and arrived late after he quarantined, but had a dispensation to race somehow, i am pretty sure that is what the commentator said.
Though after the recent issue with djokovic, am not sure that would have been the case.

@Richard_Sideways, +1 regarding Jenny Jones commentary it nearly sent me to sleep!!!
its a shame as when she conducts interviews, they are generally very good.

This. Normally really good, and she's a good public speaker too - can only think that she was just reading off a script someone had shoved in her hand last minute.

Nice to see Bell in action. We don’t want to see a ski tip shot of him though, just the view coming down at a speed I never would. Enjoyed as a skier half of the boarding, not the half pipe though which I find spectacularly boring. Hope he gets to do the Hannenkahm.

Think they'll show Kitz slalom with Dave Ryding Gold. And so appropriate. A century of slalom was celebrated on the slopes at Muerren last Monday, where it was all started by Sir Arnold Lunn. One of the message tributes was from Dave, another from Sir Arnold's great grandson who was there.

It’ll be 15 minutes on the FIS Alpine Slalom race. Then 45 minutes of Freestyle interviews, clips, with maximum use of the terms “bro”, “wicked” and “radical”.

They might show more of the Para worlds this week. There’s been more successes this week. On top of Dave winning in Kitzbuhel, we had a gold in the VI slalom today with Menna Fitzpatrick.

i found out that "rocket ryding" won today whilst buying new skis in ski bartlett this afternoon, i overheard the shop staff and another customer talking about it, and joined in the conversation.

i assumed that it would be announced on the sports news on BBC, Nada, not a thing!!!!

its not as if we win a FIS world cup race on a weekly basis, FFS!!!!!!

plenty of coverage of a brit tennis player being knocked out of the aussie open though Puzzled

Tonight’s ski Sunday should be the slalom and downhill. Nothing else, except a Dave interview. Turn next week over to snowboarding by all means, but this week is about Dave!

Just watched him. My slight association is that I come from a village about 15 miles from Dave's village, near Preston. Apparently he skied at Pendle (as in Hill) dry slope which I never used but have seen it. Well done Dave!
