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 :-)

I panicked for about a minute then realised i had an empty credit card for emergencies! Very Happy

Remembered how to ski quite quickly last month but forgot how to speak French!


That happened to me in November but with German! At breakfast on the first day after not skiing for about 2 years what with the Covid stuff I realised I couldn’t speak German anymore.

@jamescollings, I take it you have earphones in then to listen to it?
I couldn’t do that as I like to be able to hear what’s going on when driving especially a right hand drive car, I can’t ride my bike with earphones in either.

I went skiing for a day for the first time in many years on my trip this year and I forgot how damn uncomfortable rental ski boots are.

Obviously not... because in France it is illegal to drive with headphones on!!!! (who knew eh?)
But if i DID have headphones... it would only be a single earpiece so that I could still hear the engine note/road noise/etc.

@ster It was a slightly surreal experience to begin with.. but then it became quite addictive (after an hour or so)... trying to guess which chapter would come next, and seeing how quick I could recognise where I was in the story from the words being spoken.

Mrs endo, the alarm clock....... From this morning, " Oh s*** the alarm didn't go off". Luckily we were only 30 minutes leaving and got to the tunnel on time...

Not skiing related, but...
20 years ago or so, my parents bought a small flat in Nice; shortly after @EmmaJ & I were the first to book it for a holiday. As the Eurostar pulled out of Waterloo (yes, that long ago) we realised that we had left the keys to the flat on our kitchen table.

Fast forward to last October; @EmmaJ and I were the last to have a holiday in this much-loved flat, shortly before it's sale to another owner. As we raced down the motorway to Bristol airport, late as ever, we remembered that we'd left behind the keys to the flat... on the kitchen table.

Come to think of it I think it may be illegal in the UK too?
Edit-actually no it isn’t illegal but the Police can pull you over for ‘driving without due care and attention’ so it may as well be illegal.

Not me, but I had a friend who bought skis after a lifetime of renting, but when he got to baggage reclaim in Geneva totally forgot about them and it wasn't until the rep on the bus asked if he needed rental kit that he remembered....

@Bergmeister, we have also forgotten our keys, but fortunately have someone locally with a set.

Driving licence, with a hire car waiting for me!

Hertz I think it was turned me away.

Then I got incredibly lucky - Europcar had a desk. They had me on their database from hiring from them a few years before elsewhere. They got me to call a dedicated DVLA section and request an emailed (to them) copy of my licence. All sorted quickly.

I’d never have lived down that blunder, from my wife.

Several years ago when the kids were 6 & 8 yrs old we were about to set off from Les Gets for the drive home. Rental apartment cleaned and locked up, I was squeezing the last bits in the roof box and getting the kids strapped in, my wife said she'd walk to the bakery go get some baguettes for the drive home and I could pick her up on the way past.

I was just exiting the roundabout near Perrieres lift on the edge of the village when a small voice from the back seat said "daddy, where's mummy?" Shocked

They're 15 and 13 now and still blackmail me with that one. Embarassed rolling eyes

Left my ski bootbag on the carousel at Gatwick airport coming home once. Not a problem, went back next day to collect it. But anyone opening it would have had a smelly surprise it also contained a very large lump of raclette cheese

I had a massive near miss a few years ago- left a whole hand luggage rucksack (!) including passport/boarding pass etc in my car that was parked in the Silver Zone at Bristol Airport and only realised when came to check in! Cuean anxious wait getting the bus back (with hardly anyone in it...) and I just had to push in in the queue when in got to the security stage or else I would have missed the flight...

...Back in the day, when virtually everyone wore skin-tight stretchy ski pants (aka race pants, at the time), I seem to remember that salopettes was a term reserved for the baggy, more insulated, trousers.
I think you'll find (well, I did, when I just googled to check) that the term is specific to pants with a bib and braces, which tallies with my own memory.
Even then you could get "ski pants" (for blokes) which did not have the bib or braces. Just like now, really.
Despite the sound of it, I think the word may be mostly used by British people - I've never heard anyone in north America use the term.

Um. I have a packing list, so even if I do forget stuff, I can't.
