comment Beginner or intermediate skis for a first pair to buy?
This question is close to what we call a "shopping question". Such are normally closed because they tend to get outdated rather quickly. However, in your case it looks quite easy to rephrase it such that it doesn't refer to a special product any more but asks the more general question what type of ski to buy in your situation. Maybe you might want to edit it that way?

comment 1000 names for snow
@Venture2099 Agreed! Nontheless, a nice community wiki collection (to me this is one of the really rare cases where a community wiki would make sense) of the different names would be some nice feature.

comment Why don't people in the UK use snowshoes?
@Aravona They work on both. The only snow that is kind of ugly to ski is wet slushy snow as one might experience it on warm days or on sunny afternoons. This is the reason, why ski-tourers tend to start early ;-)
