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 :-)

DebbiDoesSnow, I assumed RED was the colour and you bought it because it matched your boots/bindings or something, whereas I now suspect it is a brand Embarassed Laughing btw I have a red car Very Happy

In a last ditch attempt, I finally got myself a helmet.
A Pro-Tec B2 Snow at £50 from TwoSeasons..
Could not see anything I liked on their website (price wise) but went to their Cambridge shop, and they had a couple of models that weren't on the website. Tried it on and it did feel quite confortable and I do not look too stoopid with it on... I hope! Very Happy
So bought it....
Off tomorrow...can't work! snowHead

Kruisler, have a fantastic time. Miss S and I just got back from our weekend trip to VT and, despite the fact that the lifts were closed for the whole of Friday and you couldn't see anything at all for the whole of Saturday, it was utterly fantastic.

Jodes has got some photos of me just off the side of the piste, quite literally up to my knees in powder. And I'm standing on my board....

All of you, get out there immediately (as if you needed any encouragement!) snowHead

rayscoops,

I sense a play on words here... Very Happy
But being french, I sometimes don't get the underlying meanings/joke.. Embarassed
So just in case: matt black..... like 95% of the snowboarding population it seems! snowHead

snojito,
Thanks.
The forecast for the Skiwelt for the next few days hovers between rain and snow (depending on websites) so I am a bit nervous..That said, We've got a hire car so I suppose we can move to avoid the rain...

rayscoops, we took it on the chin and booked through a certain crystalline tour operator -- they've got a couple of chalets in VT (and in Tignes and in Flaine I think) that only do short breaks, either Thu-Sun or Sun-Thu (most, if not all of the deals, on lastminute and first choice to those resorts are in their properties) It's pricey, especially compared to a DIY week, but annual leave meant we couldn't take a longer trip, we didn't have a lot of time to shop around, and not going just wasn't an option.

actually, mr. scoops, I partly blame you --- it was your early season reports from St Anton that forced us to break open the piggy bank!

Kruisler, he was referring to the fact that I bought a R.E.D helmet (which is a brand of Burton) and rayscoops, bless him, thought that I was saying a bought a red one (as in the colour)

p.s didnt realise that english is your 2nd language, you hide it well Laughing

Thank for the compliment about the language. Having been in the UK for the last 11 years I am becoming dangerously british! Twisted Evil

I even get your sense of humour and jokes....well most of the time anyway! Laughing

Kruisler, totally innocent as explained by DebbiDoesSnow, , as my dear old ma used to say it is not the mouth it comes out of but it is the mind it goes in to Laughing

DebbiDoesSnow, in my defence you did say you bought a RED one, not a R.E.D one Little Angel

rayscoops, yes sorry, the punctuation made all the difference. Although in my defence by saying ' RED helmet ' i didnt think people would assume I was excited enough to shout the colour NehNeh

Well, just thought I'd mention that on my first morning in Austria, I had my biggest headplant/faceplant ever and that my helmet did save me from a serious headache!

Glad I did get one in the end... snowHead

okay 3 broken wrists later, only ever done this on dendex, not on snow !

and 1 split open head,

it hurts, try the gloves with the removable guards about £30.00 from bargainboards, then you have both options !!!

and these are good, http://www.bargainboards.co.uk/P/Optimum-ELECTRO-PLUS-Impact-Shorts(2641).aspx,

Kruisler, Glad to hear the B2 helmet worked OK. As a new convert to helmets I bought the B2 over the weekend seems pretty good not sure about the MP3 adapter ear covers seem a dangerous idea listening and sliding losing one of your senses and I need all the help I can get Very Happy

bladeski,

I got the one model down from yours, i.e. without the audio ear covers.
That said, one of my mates, on our first morning, put his ipod earphones in, with his helmet on top. Everytime we stopped and talked, his answers were "wot? eh? hang on.." and he'll take a glove off, fish the ipod out his "ipod special" O'neil jacket, turn the volume down, make us repeat and give us a proper answer... Laughing

After two runs, he got fed-up (so were we!) and got the earphones out, never to be worn again whilt boarding... Toofy Grin Laughing
