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. 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 :-)

Forget the French side at GVA, no winter tyres and when we stopped at Fue Vert to pick some chains up, we found out it was 'unchainable'- not worth the small saving. If you're picking up a big family car, book the chains direct.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Hi all I'm heading to Argentiere tomorrow for a few days. I'm keen to hire a pair of Black Crows Navis with a view to buying at a later date. I know Black Crows originate from Chamonix so will these be freely available to hire or does anyone know a rental shop which will definitely stock these? Thanks Tom
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Hi all I'm flying into Geneva next week a few days ahead of spending a week in Les Arcs. I've got a car and happy to drive for a few hours to where ever the best snow is (Austria is too far unfortunately). Any resort suggestions where the conditions are looking good? We are a group of 3 competent skiers who mostly like to ski lift accessed off piste. Thanks !

His insurance is with Insure&Go so hopefully based on albob's email with them it should be OK. Cheers Tom

Hi all A friend of mine crashed on piste last week and has torn his ACL. He was taken off the mountain in a blood wagon/ skidoo and then racked up a few other expenses including a leg brace and crutches. When he phoned his insurance company, one of their first questions was 'were you wearing a helmet' and he answered honestly that he was not. Obviously the injury and costs don't relate in anyway I can see his wearing one or not but there is a clause in his policy that states he should wear one. Does anyone have any experience of this and will the insurance company use it as a reason not to pay out? I'm not sure at the moment which company he used but it was a cheap policy he found through some comparison site, so we can assume it isn't snowcard or similar. Thanks for your help. Tom
Then you'll get to see more forums.

@BertieG As eversolazy says, there are two of us going to the UCPA (arriving on the 30th). We have a day to 'find our legs' on the 31st (which I imagine we'll need!) and then 1/2 a day on the 6th when hopefully we'll know where were are going after a week of guided skiing. I'm nervous about the snow conditions for off-piste though....
And post your own questions...

Hello Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel or B&B near Grenoble Airport? There are 5 of us who need to stay for 1 night (7th of Feb). We are going to arrive late, leave early and we are all mates (no wives or kids) so nothing deluxe required. Cheers Tom
And they're a friendly bunch.

The Forge is very basic but I've used them for years with no problems and they are cheap!
You know it makes sense.

Also, the second time we went we thought we would book directly with UCPA but infact it was cheaper through AO.

I've used Action Outdoors a couple of times to stay with the UCPA and had 2 good experiences (although both times we arranged our own travel). I went to Serre Chevalier and Val D'Isere and would recommend the UCPA as a great way to ski on a budget. In SC there were only a handfull of English people but we were grouped with them and our guide spoke English. In VD it was packed full of English but we were in a group with only French and the guide didn't really speak any English. My only criticism would be that the instruction seems quite hit and miss in my experience. I did the off piste course in SC and it was much closer to having a helpful guide. But what a div i am i have only just noticed that Action Outdoors is aimed at 18 to 39 year olds which makes me too old Don't worry about it - I went with a chap in his 40's both times and whilst the average age certainly is younger there was a real mix of ages including people in their 60's both times.

If you go expecting to not get any sleep, then any you do get will be a bonus! I went from London to Bourg SM and then took the funicular up to Les Arcs - I would do it again for the extra day skiing.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.
