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 :-)

Either way, it was a good result for Italy, because according to wiki ' South Tyrol is the wealthiest province in Italy and among the wealthiest in the European Union.' wink

I would say it's Underrated.

There are threads however, that will remain (hah!) nameless - but their very mention would turn this into being Overrated. Toofy Grin

Surely no one rates a nicked bread roll from brekky? That's just bl00dy tight. rolling eyes I say tight, coz if you're genuinely that hard up, what the hell are you doing on a ski holiday??

Absolutely! Ideally with some pilfered bacon, smothered in ketchup then ineffectively wrapped in a paper napkin so the sauce leaks out into your pocket and gets all over your phone.

When we were running ski chalets it was a common occurrence. It wasn't the people on a tight budget though, it was the well off posh types. The more skint customers bought bread and stuff from the shop down the road.

@robnic, Laughing I agree by the way. And cheap, nasty bog roll has got to be the ultimate insult!

@RobinS, I worked for a season many years ago and, yes, the richer/posher the clients, the meaner they were and the more liberties they took. It was very difficult for me to keep my temper with some of them.
