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 :-)

Richard_Sideways, I'm happy to be directed if anyone disagrees, but I think it's good to leave things as open to interpretation as possible... if nothing else it can also make the application entertaining when discussed IRL Wink

I can hear calls of "RULE 5" from the chairlift... Shouts of 'Rule 13!" when someone orders a latte at a cafe...

but the best is rule 4 as it's totally subjective

And got it wrong.

Carrying skis = whoopee!. It's an actual rule and it predates these.

Rule 40: Your childs behaviour is Your responsibility as a parent, You view of "giving them space to grow and develop without boundaries" does not include the following scenarios
a. Allowing Your child to sit and scream in an enclosed or public space where people would normally expect to be able to conduct a conversation at a level that will not exceed that of a 747 on full throttle. Examples include but not soley inclusive of :- restaurants, planes, lounges or other communal areas. Unless falling under the remit of Rule 15 then this rule may not apply

b. Allowing Your children to climb on, under or around other people when they are eating, relaxing (so long as they are not in violation of Rule 23 at that time) or having adult conversations.

You have a valid reason, and therefore are not doing it to pretend you're better than you are. That's the difference.

As I said earlier, don't get bogged down in details... live in the spirit.

ansta1, Rule 40 is valid as a general concern, but it's not specific to skiing. In the spirit, I'd say that that came under the remit of rule 7

Reminds me of a septic we bumped into one day in Courmayeur some seasons ago - cruising the pistes with harness and a ski pole with - I kid you not- a flip out ice axe built into the handle

I guess that would need approval from admin annd the snowHead gods. Wouldn't want to bring the forum into disrepute.

Perhaps something subtle.

Rule 40. No lengthy warm-up at the top of the first run. Walking briskly to the ski lift constitutes a full warm-up. If you're in ski-in ski-out accommodation, hike up for 10 minutes. Or if you're old and creaky, warm up in the room before getting out.

The average number of posts before Les Saisies gets mentioned in a thread must never drop below 9, or the site admin's gonads will explode (they've been rigged to a bomb on a little mobile phone with velcro).

It's different from those rules. This is to stop spineless people from gawping mindlessly at the top of Corbet's or other such places. It's no defence that your friends ski around the drop too - if you stop to watch the action, you have to join in.
