Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Having said we'd never do it...

...we went and did it.

Never wanted or needed to buy skis before, but for 4 weeks in Canada, renting was getting into silly money. Ebay rarely seemed to have anything useful for myself or my wife, and according to my brother-in-law (already out there) the Whistler Clearance store's stock cannot be relied upon.

And as with renting, the exchange rate currently makes buying new in resort prohibitively expensive.

So only one option remaining... after much Googling and forays to a total of four ski shops, Snow Togs are currently setting up our new skis. Atomic Elysians for my wife and Nomad Blackeye Tis for me.

I'd had my heart set on some Sultan 80s but neither Snow Togs nor Filarinskis rated them (for me, at least) despite both stocking them. Other recommendations were Watea 78s and Head i.Peak 78s; having read some reviews I liked the sound of the Heads, the Fischers less so - but having had three techs independently point me to the Atomics, decided to plump for them.

We're picking them up on Saturday, leaving a week later. Exciting times Cool
