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 :-)

well i think most skiers should be pronating themselves and chanting

Our snowboard, who art in backcountry,
hallowed are thy lines,
thy faceshots come,
thy slashes be done, on windlips and in gullies,
give us this day our daily carve,
and forgive us our lift line scratches, as we appreciate you gave us the sidecut,
to lead us not into sideslipping,
and deliver us from christies,
for thine is the waisting, the carving and the gorey, for powder and deeper, Amen


without sidecut the vast majority of technically inept skiers i see out "carving" their way down the slopes would be skidding about the place like bambi on ice. put eveyone on an old school set of 205 skis - you know the ones nearly seven foot of pencil ski and see how you all get on without this technical innovation - brought to you by the wonderful world of snowboard. (i do ski as well as snowboard and know how easy it is to carve those waisted numbers. anyone with a modicum of ability should look like they're on rails)

Sorry, bit off topic.

I was thinking about getting my 10 year old nephew a games console for his birthday. Does anyone know which is better out of an Xbox 360 and a Playstation 3?

We're also going to be getting him a pet, so any opinions on which is better - cats or dogs - would also be most welcome. Thanks in advance everyone!

paulio, Word of warning, if you get him a PS3 and a male cat, make sure the former is protected from the latter's tendency to 'mark his territory'.

PS3's are not catpi$$proof.


PS.(1) - PS3 is vastly superior to XBOX

PS.(2) - Cats make wonderful pets, dogs are for losers who wear hats

PS.(3) - Your nephew will much prefer an iPhone anyway.

still got a sidecut, even though it is a slight one needing great skill to control. wink

(born 47, started skiing 63, in Norway, on very, very, long Alpine skis which had a sidecut even then).

Sidecut – the subtle hourglass shape of the ski – goes back to skiing’s prehistory. It was invented by now-forgotten artisans sometime before 1808 and was adopted universally after being popularized by Sondre Norheim and his friends in Telemark, Norway, around 1856.

Now that i think about it, tea is skiing and coffee is boarding, tea can be good, if you mix it up and try different flavors, but coffee will always give you a rush, and is the darker of the two.

One of them says cats are better, and the other insists that dogs are better.

They can't both be right though!

under a new name, harrisontherabbit,so they had a sidecut of what, 4mm? upon seeing how well snowboards turned ski designers followed suit, roughly quadrupling the sidecut and altering the natural turn radius by a factor of ten. the difference between 'old' and 'new' is immense. there's a very different level of skill required to flex up an old school 'straight' ski to enable a carved turn, and merely flopping over sideways and letting it all happen (ok - a slight over exageration).

by the way under a new name, i like the idea of you ripping the pow at two (probably) Laughing , wiki is crap i know, but then i couldn't be arsed to find anything more 'official'.

i don't have a beef with skiers, i am one. i don't have a beef with boarders, i am on. probably why i have both dogs and cats, but neithter a playstation nor an x-box snowHead
