Mail for help.Help!!

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. 40,000+ 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 :-)

It is/was a great place - so sad for Alberto the owner.

The Rifugio's website says "completely burned" - sounds very bad.

What a terrible shame. We were looking forward to lunch there tomorrow and saying hi to Alberto and the crew. Thankfully everyone is safe.

BertieG, All pistes in good nick, off pistes variable and mostly windblown.

We skied past the Rifugio and briefly spoke to a desolate Alberto. Terrible shame.

Building is, as you can imagine from the picture above, completely gutted.

I have great memories of that place. A wonderful place for lunch and an even better place to stay overnight - even without hot showers. Hopefully they can re-build it and retain the magic and history.

Sad news again. Guglielmina isn't going to be rebuilt. We skied round to it the week before Christmas and there is nothing but the flag pole left on the site.

AndAnotherThing.., It was closed before christmas, the deck hadn't been cleared of snow etc. There were quite a few people around as there was a helicopter just taking off to do avalanche practice when we got there (the booggers could have waited 2 minutes till we had gone rather than cover us in snow!!) It was very quiet so they may have been waiting till xmas week to open.
