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 :-)

Oh crikey, I've inadvertently given sound buying advice to Boarders. No worries, in the spirit of respect and harmony I'll say it again, Tk-Maxx is rubbish. If you want sound performance clothing for excellent value, go straight to Gucci Toofy Grin .

They've finally gone and done it. 150cm F2 Bloom Snowboard out on display Shocked. I didn't have the courage to look at the price. TK Maxx are determined to bankrupt me (luckily, it's a board for the ladies anyway).

edit: non-boarder got the brand name mixed up.

well, a third Maxx has opened in my area so I popped down there and came away with a pair of snowboard pants and a snowboard jacket (5,000 thingy breathable etc.) for £60. Bargain. Loads of Billabong/Quiclsilver snowboard type stuff etc., plus the normal ski jacket type stuff.

Nice new stores = nice new stock - too much girlie stuff (all pink, pastel, beige) though for my liking wink

Lizzard, Its because I am so small (5ft) that every season I ruin my trousers by them dragging on the floor. I normally try to buy sale pants to keep the cost down but they are calling me ! At £150 Shocked they are an extravance, so will be waiting to see if I get my bonus before I splash out.

Now if the Maxx did skis/snowboards...

........If they did we would all be skiing/snowboarding on 1 year old+ skis and boards based on, from what i see, TK'S do not do a great deal of present season stock-if any even on there clothing line.
A bargain is a bargain, fair enough but if they start doing hardwear this will send an already suffering industry to decline.
For the sake of skiing/snowboarding industry in the u.k let's hope they don't focus on hardwear as we will all walk around with sore feet, not have decent advice and hinder the development of the wintersports industry(IMO)

And most of the brands they sell (trespass etc) really have no technical qualities. The waterproof/breathability of this brand isn't really worth mentioning generally simply sitting on snow will be too much vapor created before water gets in and moisture from the body cannot be released.

In my opinion check the label before you buy and anything below 5000mm waterproofness and 5000mm breathability really will not do a great job if you are an active, out on the slopes all day skier.

I learnt from experience and found these guidelines useful as a minimum requirement.

Known collectively as "The Pixies" on snowHead often to be found in waist deep powder (sometimes from the waist down, other times from the waist up) but always with a smile (and usually a glass of something cold too).

Debbi, tell me about it, a member of the pixie set I know how you feel. I bought a North Face pair in LDA during the last PSB. The bottoms are already frayed. Linds bought some Schoffel pants (I think) in a shorter leg length, and she's a pixie too. IN another thinner life I used to get away with age 14 ones, but my bum is a bit more lardy these days.
