159: Skiing in Austria in October, Wipeout Piste Maps & whether to rent or buy your Snowboard

In Episode 159 we discuss piste maps, skiing in Austria in October and look back at the National Snow Show. We also ask whether you should rent your snowboard in resort, rather than buying.

Iain was joined by Gethin James and Julie Slaughter, founder of Wipeout, as well as down the line by Chris Moran from Intersport Ski hire.


  • Iain presented about driving an electric car to the Alps at the National Snow Show
  • Les 3 Vallees is the largest ski area in the world
  • Check out the Wipeout range on their website
