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 :-)

Snowboarding only resort

Also sherlock another thing mate, it does not matter if one is used to a tow lift, given a chance a boarder would rather a chair anyday, ask around you will see. How would a chair slow one down ????????? also other great lift for boarders would be more rope tows or the relaxing magic carpets like this one Little Angel
http://youtube.com/v/df1KSGiaQZQ even us adults enjoy them lol.


in a park, i would rather have a poma lift cos firstly they're cheaper so the resort can either spend the savings on better park designers and builders, and secondly their pylons are easier to move about if they decide to change the park layout after a season or two. i'm not a huge fan of rope tows - i find they destroy my gloves unless they have those handle-type thingys on them. and i only like magic carpets for beginners. i hike otherwise, cos i don't have the patience for standing when i could be moving my legs up the mountain. just my thoughts though.

eretochat, Laughing i've been on this forum for a couple of years and since then i've learnt a few things about Lizzard.

1.) Lizzard is a woman
2.) she's snowboarded for a while, so her experience allows her to know a thing or two, both about resorts and about technique and equipment
3.) she can't be bothered to be a stalker, even less be a stalker on any thread unless she's amusing herself cos she's as bored as i am at the end of a season
4.) she lives and works in a resort and has done so for a while. this means she'll also know a bit about what goes into a successful resort

(correct me if i'm wrong here on any point pls Lizzard Laughing .)


Whereas, from here..

Red leon, your point here is neither relevent, nor interesting, i was right about you too much time on your hands, is Lizzard a girl? wow, i am shocked at her behaving as she has, and what does it matter about starting out boarding, i have friends who boarded for years, my brother for one, i have heard them chatting about board only resorts many a time, so your comment does not have any relevance here, a forum is a place of chat and learning so your point is what? I am guessing since you have been here a couple of years, i am not the first to be subjected to your stupid remarks. Smile Get a life mate.

eretochat,

You really are a charmer, aren't you?

I was offering a possible explanation for your odd view of what might make a boarder-friendly resort (among them your frankly ridiculous suggestion that chairs in the park would be better than tows) - viz, you speak from a position of relative inexperience.

And by the way, you seem to post replies pretty regularly & quickly yourself - perhaps you have too much time on your hands and ought to 'get a life, mate'. rolling eyes

sherlock235, you credit the creature with knowing the cut-off time for pranks, something they they have spectacularly failed to do in this forum. And you should feel extra special for apparently making friends with The Idiot, only to be flamed about 3 minutes later. Just about sums up whatever 6th form sociopath is behind the posts (I'm not buying the 35 year old woman statement, no 35 year old is that stupid and ignorant)

Serre chevalier has some pretty fierce drags , half way they have a loads woops just before a 60degree incline , you launch off the last woop into the air and land a couple metres up the incline Shocked
somehow not as painfull as the T-bars in finland that were sooooo slow !! 15minute drag to the top of a run that took about 2 minutes to get down Mad
as for the expert talk on forums , sometimes i PMSL and wonder what these "keyboard experts" are like Laughing Laughing

That drag sounds painful, 15 mins is way to long, now that sounds like it needs a chair lift, another point, alot of resorts need to update there lifts asap, story's on the worse lifts would be funny, any takers? lets do a top ten. wink

I'm pretty sure that every one of them would be in Canterbury in NZ.

Aforementioned high speed rope tows. They will humble anybody for at least a morning, regardless of skill on skis or board, and it's no fun getting spanked while you are watching epic snow being tracked. If you get your hair caught in the pullies, then you go bald, if you get a finger in the pullies, you don't have it any more. And it's really easy to smack your plums into the pullies too. And the climbing harness gives you a real bad wedgie. And if the nutcracker flies off the rope, it usually smashes you in the face. Or the plums.

The new one going in at Roundhill will be a whole new experience in earning your turns. 1.4km long, 6-700 metres of vert, accessing some sick looking terrain. I've sat in the car park getting drunk while the kids snowboard, looking at the face out the back many times, and never been sober or keen enough to hike it. No excuse now, but the lift will suck.

Obviously with $74 of investment in a lift at a mountain, you don't get a gondola to get up to there either. You have to drive it, and that's a whole new experience in sh1tting yourself Laughing

Single lane goat tracks covered with snow and ice for 20km's up the side of a mountain are a good sphincter workout. On more than one occasion I've had mates get out and walk in preference to the drive back down. You can't sue for personal injury either, so a crash barrier is a rare site. But the car insurance is cheap Cool

I used to live up there until a couple of years ago, so those were my local hills. Had to move south, so I get to ride the bigger commercial fields around Queenstown and Wanaka now. Still good, but very different vibe. I get a lot more days on the mountain, and a lot more distance covered, but a lot more people around. Still great, just different.

There will be a very picture heavy snow report thread starting in about 8 weeks time Very Happy So you can see what it looks like.

I'm tramping into Fiordland tomorrow for a few days to go fishing. The forecast is for snow to 600 metres, I'll be up at 1300 metres or so tomorrow night. Can't wait, first snow of the year.

Some of the best fly fishing in the world right on the doorstep.

I could get real boring and post a couple of hundred fish p0rn pics from the last summer. We've had a mouse plague this year, so the trout have got huge 12 - 16lb's not that uncommon where I'm heading to this weekend. I've got a few mouse flies in my box, but not sure if the fish will still be on them.

Have a look at this, a trailer for a fly fishing film made around the south of the south island

The salmon fishing is mainly over on the big East Coast rivers. Bores the cr4p out of me with all that casting, sight fishing to spooky trout is way more fun.
