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...

PreBBWUW(6) Pre-Birthday Bash Warm Up Week, Alleghe 27th Jan
Beautiful lakeside hotel in Alleghe, this filled up surprisingly fast Shocked

S14BB, snowHeads becomes a teenager: 14th Birthday Bash, Arabba 3rd Feb
Happy Birthday to us! (There will be cake!)

GnarBuG, Gnarly But Gnice, Gressoney 3rd Mar
A little wild, charmingly under-developed, a backdrop of 4000m peaks, Italian lunches - the 'ave a lunch risk is high here ...

8th Pre Birthday Bash Warm Up Week, Alleghe, the Dolomites Buttons!
Lovely, friendly little resort in the Italian Dolomites at a very friendly price - with reasonable access to the mighty Sela Ronda. As if that wasn't enough, it's even better value when doing the double with the Birthday Bash.

Sat 1st - 8th Feb 2020 :: S16BB
snowHeads 16th Birthday Bash, Arabba, Italian Dolomites Buttons!
Celebrate snowHeads becoming al,pst nearly grown-up in Arabba, right on the legendary Sela Ronda circuit, connecting so many stunning destinations, a week simply isn't enough to do it justice.

Sat 29th Feb - 7th Mar 2020 :: GnarliBuG
Gnarly But Gnice, Gressoney, Monterosa Buttons!
while there's epic off piste available, there's no need to be skiing off piste to enjoy this week. For all the epic Gnarliness The Monterosa area offers access to, there's just as much Gniceness too. Great food, Italian hospitality, beautiful scenery. To get the most from this week you should be happy with red runs rather than 'suffering' them but, that guidance in mind, it's open to all.

Sat 7th - 14th Mar 2020 :: SOPiB2020
Spring Off Piste Bash 2020, Serre Chevalier/La Grave Buttons!
To come on this, you need to be happy with anything a black run throws at you. However you don't need previous off-piste experience as we will have a number of groups covering the whole spectrum of off piste skiing, from nurturing noobies off the edge of the piste to (potentially) hanging around on ropes on the way into couloirs.

Sat 11th - 18th Apr 2020 :: SFaB2020
Spring Families Bash, Val Thorens
NOTE: Link is to last year's event for info :: Buttons nearer the time.
I've been offered a deal on the H'ashmir again. Basically the same as last year although no 6 bed aparts yet; 4bed only but some 6's may come later. Lift pass is more pricey though so that's pushing the overall cost up a little this year.

Sat 18th - 25th Apr 2020 :: EoSB2020
End of Season Bash, Val Thorens Buttons!

All the details are in the snowEvents forum.
If you can't see it, bear in mind you will need to be logged in to access it. Why do I have to log in to see this stuff?
- We are not a tour operator: snowHeads is a community of enthusiastic "snow-heads".
- We are boarders and skiers, beginners and experts and all different ages. Some visit the site daily, some just pop in when they're excited about (or researching) their next trip. The connection is the love of the mountains and the passion for sliding about on them.
- The bashes came about because people, who had met via snowHeads, wanted to meet up and actually ski together rather than just talk about it with each other. The result is this set of trips, spread throughout the season.
- So essentially, the bashes are for snowHeads rather than snowHeads being for selling holidays.
- The most frequent remark we get from newcomers is that everyone seems so friendly and welcoming. This is because anyone who is not friendly gets beaten and left outside in the snow for the night*

*That's the 'not true' bit, in case U were worried Wink

Sadly I can't make the Pre-birthday or Birthday bashes this year.
Anyone interested in going for a week or so in a chalet later in February or in March ?
I was thinking of trying Austria again - maybe St Anton, Kitzbuhel or Ishhgl - but not fixed on destination.
Hopefully - Mike

Hi, hopefully this is in the right place, my husband and I are hoping to attend a bash next season, as none of our friends ski, and our approaches to skiing are very different, I like to be in control & ski at a speed I am comfortable with, happy on reds, not keen on blacks, whist my husband likes to ski faster, and will ski anything.

Does the there tend to be a mix of different levels of skiers, who are happy not to ski with their partners, ans ski in groups.

@Jja, I've only done one bash so far, but I'd say that's exactly how it works. But why wait until next season, there's still space on the EoSB Very Happy
Theres also the MyaSHBash, which is perfect for converting those friends that don't ski... Toofy Grin
