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 :-)

Austria : Tonight 40 villages cutoff 1200 military deployed.

With rose tinted hindsight, in the 70's and 80's it felt like our village got cut off every year; no bus service/bread delivery to our village.

Walking to the village from our house as the road was blocked by snow, past both our Landrover and the tractor that tried to pull it out. We were alright for meat/eggs/milk due to the farms around us, but it was great fun when it happened.

I remember 82 snow when I was young. Snow was up to my waist. Seemed to last for weeks, being off school & playing in the snow.
I remember we had a CB radio, which was a touch legal to own illegal to use kind of thing.
My parents used to help co-ordinate help & aid thanks to people with appropriate vehicles that could drive in the snow.


I was working for the Brecon Beacons National Park back then, based in Abergavenny. We couldn't do our normal work so we helped the local hospital and the police.
We got one of the Land Rovers stuck in the town and had to dig it out. I think that some insanely low temperature was recorded locally one night, below -20°C?
Anyway, I had a great time.

This was today off piste in the Amade region. It was a uniform tree covered slope that was pretty tracked out and as it was above a recently opened itinerary run had been evaluated for avi risk.

Rules:
Pick your route carefully. Evaluate slopes above your route for possible avi propagation. Do not take risks. Keep a close eye on each other as tree wells, drifts and falling trees are as much a danger as avis at the moment.
If you do not have long term local knowledge then err on the side of caution.

Business as usual here in Saalbach (except that snow depths on the mountains and in the village are exceptional, and much of the time you can ski down the streets if you really want to, also the trees are clad in heavy snow making them look completely white and rather surreal). The resort has just announced that avalanche blasting has been successful, and it is not expected that any further closure of the valley road that connects the village to the outside world will be necessary (the road was closed for about 24 hours last Saturday).
