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'm on a theoretical 11 days assuming they find some 50 pence coins for the snow cannon meters. Sunday is also pencilled in for the 1st descent of the lauberhorn track, I've given myself a minimum depth of 20 cms for this to be possible, snow depth at the moment is pushing at least a cm in places Very Happy

rayscoops, because that is my job.... no certs or low level certs = crap pay or worse case scenario no job Crying or Very sad

- in the current ski climate you need to be qualified to do a lot of things to enable you to earn a meager crust...

can`t complain though.. it sure as hell beats the office job.

I think I am fun... now where did I put that edge angle measuring thingy.. need to get those slalom ski`s to exactly 1.97 degrees.. I also need to blunt the edges of my park skis... snowHead

This post was also meant in jest.. I obviously meant 1.97859654745 degrees... what was i thinking wink Puzzled

mrtoastie, stab, i'm scared of hieghts tooo!!!! but its not so much the height of something its being on a ridge! I just cant handle it. I cant even handle watching my hubby or my dog be near the edge with out total panik setting in.

I cant breath and i get all sweaty hands and then i just have to hit the snow and try and calm down for a bit.


I can hike up faces but i cant hike up ridges. I've tried to get to the top of La Cucamel, here in Serre Che, i've not even made it past the first nob, but i will make it to that this year.

Ahah there is my goal! get further up the cuc!

Lizzard, if your going for a shred up at montgenevre let me know we can meet up!

and if anyone wantst o add me on face book i'm Kim Cook

Lizzard, they officially dont open till the 8th, well that's what it says when you drive through. I am in Morocco from the 24th Nov till the 3rd dec, so if its open you never know! What bar you in, and how late do you stay open? We arrive back in turin late on the 3rd but i konw for the fact the guy picking us up will be killing for a drink by t he time we get to monty! Maybe we pop in for a bevvie!

snowangel., bah, that's annoying - I thought it opened on the first, dammit! We're in the Rois Mages, and opening hours will very much depend on how much demand there is - the point of opening early is to catch the lunchtime trade and snare early seasonnaire arrivals before they get into the habit of going to other places.

To divert from facebook (even though it's now on topic) I found the big difference in riding flat sections was when I learnt to keep the board on an edge rather than leting the base run flat. In this situation you can go faster than a skier until they use their sticks or start skating.

Swirly, I started off keeping it on an edge because I was paranoid about catching edges and going over like a felled tree. The whole thing improved as I got better at holding a straight line - am now faster than most of the skiers.

Lizzard, that's the trick, on edge but going straight. With one edge there's less friction hence you overtake skiers.

debbi, but if the snow gets lumpy* you run the risk of catching an edge.


* I've still not worked out why do rollers form on flat pistes? I have absolutely no idea.

I've caught a few thats why I've been so reserved about doing that. Not quite mastered keeping the edge in a straight line for long periods of time.

Another 'goal' to add then - Overtaking skiers on my edge on the flats Smile

debbi, unfortunately not even enough snow on the ground to justify dropping ones pants and plonking @ss in the white stuff. Only a few patches here and there.

You are a s/boarder so I am guessing this will be of no interest to ya but one of my friends owns and runs a ski school in Tignes. Sure you will have fun. If you find a patch of snow drop your keks and stick your @ss in it for me Toofy Grin

In fact I think that could be a mission for us all this season.... I feel a new thread coming... Bare @rses in the snow. Does it please the snow gods? (Photos to prove the deed has been done are required)
