Snow Reports

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Boot material degradation

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Have been skiing in a wonderful pair of Salamon boots for about 7 years now that fit like a glove. No fancy adjusters just four buckles. They have had about 11/12 weeks on snow and I was wondering about the material the boot is constructed of and the speed it degrades.

Obviously you can tell how well the linning is holding up (no probs on my boots) but is there any guide to the shell and how quickly it loses its design qualities. I guess it will be a mixture of age/use and storage conditions.

I once read sometime back that you should replace skis/boots after a full season, Id say my boots have some way to go before they have done the weeks for a season.

Any ideas out there
