    We packed ours two years ago, hope they are still in date!!:BigGrin:

    Mind you, haven't they opened tinned stuff off the Titanic and that was still OK?

    By this time, anyone reading this thread in the hope of genuine advice on kitting out your MH for a skiing trip will have given up and gone to the Dark Side...............:Doh:

    'British Corner Shop' ship worldwide!
    If we run out of FB pies we can have them delivered!! Wow!:BigGrin:

    We have been practicing chain fitting too. It's a bit of a squeeze to thread them between our dual rear wheels.
    Mind you, we haven't been stuck yet on snow, so with the chains on, the Tranny will be unstoppable!:BigGrin:

    Also, we have jump leads, a tow strop, a ladder, snow shovel and soft brush for snow removal, a pair of overalls, gloves and knee pads for chain fitting, lots of screenwash concentrate, a blowtorch and a couple of builders buckets for collecting grey water and saving the hassle of a frozen waste tank.

    Anyone think of anything else?

    Got all that except the tow rope and blow torch.
    Read somewhere to take a portable step as the electric ones freeze up.

    I saw the photos, that's why I asked :Rofl1:

    Am awaiting delivery of snow chains then hubby can have a play with them.
    Just had my snow boots delivered today. Hubby keeps bidding on some on ebay but to date has not managed to win any as they go for a fortune and he wants to pay peanuts!
    Now awaiting delivery of some 'short leg' salopettes that hopefully will fit as I've tried loads on in TK Max, Sports Direct etc.... but they are all about a foot too long:Eeek::Eeek::Eeek: If these don't fit then I'll have to get sewing.

    I'll second that!
    We have a fleet of forktucks that work at -28 c in a coldstore. The plastic trims are always brittle and keep breaking at those temperatures!:Doh:
