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 :-)

Snow and avalanche 2017/18

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
It may be late season but the non stop poor weather is still bringing a lot of fresh snow at altitude to the Alps. There was a fatal avalanche in Saas Fee on Sunday on the Hohbalmgletscher at 4100 meters. A skier was buried by a large slide. Members of the skier's group along with eyewitnesses recovered the skier but it was too late. Victim was local to the area, aged 23.

Might be time to open a 2018 / 2019 thread on this one.

See 9 climbers died this week at 11k feet in a mad snowstorm on Mt Gurja in Nepal.

Good set of photos.

Surprised to see the lakes still unfrozen in deepest January midwinter.

Thanks for posting. Slope looks fairly innocuous. Worrying that a group should have got caught in such a way.

Interesting also that one airbag wasn't deployed and another failed to deploy.

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, and probably many of you already know it anyway but it may be of interest to other piste-only skiers....

Perhaps the mods would care to unsticky this old thread and sticky the 2018/19 one instead?

Not sure where but somewhere in Austria (edit - A ridge of snow near the village of St Anton am Arlberg)

I don't ski off piste but do read a few threads here. I thought you ski one at a time if its risky, why are there so many going at once?

Edited for location, apparently:

"A ridge of snow near the village of St Anton am Arlberg"

The first part seems bleedingly obvious.
