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 :-)

...it's an evocative shot of the Coire Cas Gunbarrel on Cairngorm,yesterday. This location - a scene of human drama, challenge and suffering over the past 43 years (the age of the trusty T-bar on the right) - will be familiar to many Cairngorm devotees.

The photo's from the excellent Highland-Instinct site. Here's a wider selection of their shots from Cairngorm yesterday. Full marks to all the photographic models for their commitment, and better luck for the rest of the season!

The UK "home" skiers are a hardy bunch!

I think I'm right in saying the Scottish resorts are commercial operations (albeit in financial difficulties), and the English operations are keen amateur, some details of them here:

One of the chaps on Ski Club Open Forum was an enthusiast for English ski=ing and he'd dropped some links which were easy enough to rediscover...

The gunbarrel actually had rather good snow earlier in the month - a bit of ice at the bottom, but thoroughly skiable, even by green skiers. Sad to see it's gone back to its usual state of affairs now though.

That's the problem with Scottish skiing - it's all about pot luck. I really can't believe how lucky we were (because of it being a special occasion, we'd booked well in advance - a sure recipe for disaster on the skiing front). We managed one day's skiing out of the two full days we were up there (the other day being written off because of high winds).

With such unreliable conditions, how are the resorts going to attract anyone except those within a couple of hours' drive, who can decide on Friday evening whether to head up? Even though we're only 3.5 hours away, we still have to plan it a bit in advance.

Worked at Aviemore at the weekend for a couple of seasons. I was tour guide and ski instructor. I well remember sitting on the coach in the mornings, praying that the electronic sign on the road to the hill would proclaim "Area Stormbound". If it was I took the customers on a distillery tour, which was a whole lot more satisfying than the skiing.

I'd probably rather spend the day at Dalwhinney given the choice too, Mike!
