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 :-)

Anyway - good to see Arnie moving on. The mag had become tedious - too much "Arnie tries free heli-skiing" type articles. And his responses to criticism from punters and views of other mags on this site a few years back were not brilliant.

Thanks. I work for Southbank Centre (since February 2008). I'd be delighted to tear your ticket (if you're willing to buy one) and guide you around a darkened auditorium. Slava's Snow Show (returning for its third Christmas) is recommended to snowHeads. It involves a "heart-stopping blizzard of snow". Not surprisingly, I enjoy being employed in it.

Significant comments yesterday on the SCGB 'Chat Forum' (not to be confused with this one - the New Ski Club of Great Britain chat forum)

The Forums Original poster: Olivia Gordon

After all the money that has been spent on the website, I am saddened at how little the forums are used - I have to say Snowheads is far superior with the latest news, photos, lively discussions etc. And I do not see the situation changing. It seems we shot ourselves in the foot some years ago.


Several other posters have pitched in after that comment, perhaps including other SCGB members (not sure if one can determine status)

Olivia Gordon has served for a long time as SCGB rep ('leader') and I seem to recall was the highest recruiter of new members during the 1980s. One of the more progressive forces in the organisation, as I remember.

... snowheads definitely claims to be a Ski Club.


Yes, I think we're aware of that. As I understand it, this outrageous claim prompted the SCGB (perhaps at your insistence, Gerry) to make legal threats against the administrator of snowHeads - there was a series of them, issued by the SCGB's solicitors Stones (of Exeter) ... [not to be referred to as 'Stoned of Exeter']

Now, Gerry, you are a Guinness drinker and proud of it. We're thinking of doing a re-make of the famous 'dancing man' advert. Would the starring role appeal to you? You're allowed to wear a blue jacket, with your choice of Land Rover or Guinness logos.

... was just a shedload of shit, presumably hoping some of it would stick. And, no, you didn't express it as a "matter of opinion" - it was written as fact - i.e. libel. One of your bosses can readily explain the difference.

I'm going to hazard a wild guess that you're a member of the Ski Club of Great Britain and are simply using underhand methods to undermine growing evidence of the seriousness of the organisation's situation.

But to do all that from the 'safe space' of anonymity is about as low as it goes. I suggest you meet up with 'PJ Ski' and work out a more sensible strategic approach. Great minds combined are capable of anything.

I'm regularly available in central London should you wish to have the decency to have a face-to-face discussion. PM me.

Apparently there's a letter describing your online behaviour - and quoting some of your more libellous remarks - that's going to be sent to Mrs Goldsmith, who probably has no idea what you've been up to. Shocked

Gerry Aitken,
it's unbelievable that you, as a SCGB director, should publicly disclose this. What "libellous remarks"? There are none, and wild imaginations don't go down well in courts of law.

Let's assume you're serious about this tactic. What do you predict this is going to achieve? What do the studio audience believe this is going to achieve?

Final question: how much money and time is being squandered by the SCGB on this nonsense?

Comedy Goldsmith, you've speculated and insinuated. Don't know why you think the ski club is sending this letter, my understanding is that it's coming from a different source. Anyway, your wife will be the one to decide if you are taking too many risks or not. I guessing she'll decide you're risking too much for too little and ban you from the internet like the naughty little boy you are. NehNeh

And I bet you're fecking shatting yourself.

Gerry Aitken, I'll leave it to you to sort all this out with the board of directors of the Ski Club of Great Britain. Assuming that your discussions and intended actions are minuted, it will then be up to the membership of the Club to decide what to do about all this (on the optimistic assumption that they would have any access to such minutes).

PJSki, Yes, I think we've all seen clip that a few times. Here's a more topical one, concerning my grandmother (I am her eldest grandchild) Leonore Goldschmidt, who died in 1983 - "The Teacher who Defied Hitler". This is a factual account, revealed for the first time (78 years after the school was established in Berlin in 1935) for Smithsonian Channel. It is being broadcast in the USA over the coming week. It is the work of a Munich-based documentary team and was premiered on German TV ten days ago.

In this trailer, you'll see short sections of an interview which I gave the journalists involved, 15 months ago in London.

The Teacher Who Defied Hitler, November 2013, Story House Productions, Munich

Further information (Facebook page in its very early stages and unpublicised): https://www.facebook.com/LeonoreGoldschmidt

Now ... the evolution of the Ski Club of Great Britain has enveloped two world wars. Sir Arnold Lunn, greatest figure in the SCGB's history, was (this is not essentially a published fact) a prominent member of the British intelligence services in WW2. And if you read his work 'The Story of Skiing' you'll see his clear defiance of Nazism emerging in pre-war Austria during the Nazi occupation - during a very interesting visit to St Anton in 1938.

What is the role of defiance? Maybe we should ponder that question.

Comedy Goldsmith, there are some battles worth fighting and others that are not - and I dont mean its because you are fighting a losing battle - I mean it because the battle is making you look foolish as there is nothing to battle about, other than egos.

Shimmy Alcott, if you perceive this as a battle then you're not really getting it (at least as I see it). Isn't it better to read it as an emerging truth? A kind of trial - of a long-established organisation - in which everyone's free to give evidence, and everyone's on the jury or in the public gallery.
