Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

My wife’s mate is away skiing just now with her mum. Just before lockdown she got new skis for her 89th(?) birthday. Now, at 91, she has decided to wear a helmet for the 1st time ever. Legend.

@dode, there are a few of us who've skied with Jude1's mum Ingrid, who is around that age. Also a total inspiration.

Skiing after 80 is pretty awesome. 90? Legend!

But what’s helmet got anything to do with it?

We skied around ten years ago with a great old friend who was 91. He had such elegant style on the snow, and that also included insisting on going into a self service place, (we were in Flaine)
and coming out followed by two waitresses carrying trays of all the coffee and drinks he had bought. That’s the way to do it, we all thought. Still with us at 101 but he has finally given up skiing and sailing.

It's partly luck, of course, but even someone who is fortunate with the genetics also has to bring a good deal of drive and resilience to bear, to be still skiing (or sailing) into ripe old age. I have crewed for 7 years or so on a boat where, at 75, I am the youngest and by some distance the most agile person on board. The skipper is 88 and has had bowel cancer, open heart surgery and a replacement hip. The boat is set up for ease of handling, with powered winches, and we have a cockpit tent to make things less cold underway, and a diesel heater for indoors! We don't do long voyages or night passages - though in the old days he did all those things. As a young man he was a top dinghy racing helm - and on the rare occasions we race these days, he still has the old competitive streak. We don't go out in the face of a stormy forecast, though inevitably one is sometimes caught out, and then we cope. I just join the boat, take my share of the victualling and the cooking (we eat and drink very well on board) and contribute what very little I'm allowed to, to the cost. The skipper does all the maintenance, works on the boat all winter. The day he has to stop sailing I suspect he'll feel life is no longer worth living.

That said you never know what's around the corner, unfortunately, as a few Geezonaires here have found out this season Sad

That's so true - and a good reason to get with doing stuff while you can.

The guy who founded my local ski field was skiing hard out into his 80’s, then he got outed as having been in the SS during ww2 and got unceremoniously cancelled.

@hang11, which just goes to show that being active well into your 80s is not a sign of moral rectitude. And, conversely, of course, deciding to take life rather easier is not morally reprehensible....

I'm unsure that it goes to show anything other than the fact that people are not keen on having members of the SS in their midst. Laughing

No, of course it doesn't. It's just that sometimes one gets the impression that people who are fit enough to ski at 90 are seen as fine examples of human beings, and that those who can't have somehow just shown a lack of moral fibre. Laughing
