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 :-)

Like Pedantica said above, I also left the club as they did nothing in response to complaints about a certain rep's vile posting, in particular, on here where he hides under his 'anonymity'
Gosh, I didn't realise that.

Can I suggest that:

Comedy Goldsmith, I plead having been confined to barracks for a week as my excuse for spending a significant amount of time on here. I can't think of any other good reason. wink

 You know it makes sense.

GrahamN, wink not at that point, and you're right it now wouldn't and precisely because of experiences like that. I've heard a rep speaking appallingly about a couple of "middle class munters" he was stuck with. It's the slow dribble of unpleasantness and an organisation that is clearly at a loss to replace its aging demographic. The site's language, layout and structure is beyond staid. That is why I wouldn't join and why so many more don't.

The member who had invited me was genuinely apologetic, he thought I would be on skis and even offered to sub the hire for me . . . but by that time the damage was done especially when none of the rest of the party had the manners to even face me themselves. I'm not an oik, I'm told I speak well, I'm clean and well presented and I'd hardly said a word to the party, names and handshakes and away. It was just I was on a board and making them look bad . . . the two women were the matriarchs of the group. Pretty faces don't mask ugly minds.

It's fascinating to listen to so many people who join for a simple convenience or offer. They're not 'club members' they're Cosco shoppers with a pretty discount card. The club is run by a number of paid personnel who administer a business with a clatch of voting shareholders that is much smaller than the numbers touted as membership so stop pretending it's more than that.

So my decision not to join is two handed, experience of some of the people who use it and a lack of significantly better value than many other snowsports recreational resources.

Just split it into two A museum and a fancy Travel Retailer. And put DG into the museum wink

He's bitter, that's his point. No editorship, so it's revenge all the way.

I beg to differ.
The last Tea Club orgy I went to, the rep branded my ar5e with a landrover logo and assigned me right away to the purple group.

Well if you're really lucky, for a tenner a day you get to follow someone with powder fever who knows their way around the juicy bits of an unfamiliar resort having dropped the published weekly schedule and the two toffy couples wearing the brightly coloured Spyder ski wear, in favour of skiing only off piste with a couple of fellow oiks who also happen to have brought their own holy trinity.

PJSki, So all this angst both in Snowheads and latterly in SCGB - before being banned there- has been about DG been deprived of the editorship of Ski & Board by he SCGB Council (mainly SCGB Reps)? We have had some classic threads on SCGB - avalanche thread cords.

Can this be true DG?
