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 :-)

superduper97, if they're twin tips with rocker then that's perfectly fine. If not, then that's fine as well, probably not ideal but still fine.

Typically skis chin to nose height would be appropriate....

You're right it is rude, to join an forum without introducing yourself, asking a question immediately, expecting a qualified answer, contributing nothing and then probably disappearing never to be seen again.
As for myself, I'm neither middle class, nor university educated, certainly not elitist.
As for being an expert in orthography, well I can use spell check, btw there's only one 'i' in skiers.

pam w, well, marginal I'd say. Weight and pressure are what the ski can feel. Height only works if everyone has the same BMI and skis at the same speed and with the same dynamism.

If you want to get pedantic, I'd say build was more important then BMI (apart from the fact that BMI is flawed anyway Wink )

For the same height and weight, a pear-shaped woman woud have a lower center of gravity than a man with a well built upper-body.

That being said, I'm not sure 5cm either way would make a ski unskiable to anyone.

Dyslexia : (n) an inability to use a spell checker when a problem with spelling is already acknowledged.

I Am Dyslexic
by superduper97 (age 14)

The skies are a view centre.
Meters above my head they are free.
They are twin.
These are my first skies.
Going to stay here and get... no. No.
And I am dyslexic.

Where your COG is doesn't change your weight. Anyway, my point is, after a century or more of people buying/renting skis, people still talk in terms of height when it is mostly irrelevant.

Puzzled every single word in the opening post is correctly spelt. Doesn't mean they are all correct, in context (maybe a bit like playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order) but spell checkers are not good at context.

The question was intelligible. And perhaps you shouldn't expect somebody with such extreme problems with spelling to compose an elegant essay to introduce themselves.

He's right, you are ass-holes.










I was going to suggest losing some weight..... wink

It doesn't change your weight but it will change the moment of inertia relative to the ski
