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 :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Hi Les Arcs - anyone else opt for credit note for refund on COVID affected booking via the central Les Arcs Réservations? We agreed a partial cash, partial credit note settlement from the central agency for a booking of 2 x apartments for the week the lock-down took place (we came, we saw, some of us skied one afternoon and then were told 'non!'). Cash portion was sorted reasonably quickly and everyone involved in our group was happy... until yesterday when the credit note was issued.
Somewhere between agreeing the value of the credit note with Les Arcs Réservation and it being issued nearly 3 months later they have deducted "fees kept by the estate agency ### ########" of over 35% of the value of the credit! (Name of agency redacted - although the mail and approach from Les Arcs during the whole process make me believe its the estate agency that have made the charge). Of course we've asked them to explain why they have changed the agreement we made - just wondering if anyone else has been confronted by similar under hand tactics?

@snowcrazy, Do you know if the mountain huts are opening this summer? I would imagine the very close proximity of sleeping people may have a high risk of transmition or, indeed, the bed bug situation.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Hi John, here is a link to the Robert Blanc refuge, one I use quite often. It is open this summer under special conditions. I think if you google other Refuge names you should find details about other places that are open. I hope this help.

Here is a copy of my latest update. I will do another one later in the coming week.

The Funicular is running and the Cachette chair is open this week. From next weekend the other summer lifts will open, but not the Vanoise Express this year.
Although they said there was social distancing on the funi, in fact people wear masks, but that is about the only difference.

On the chairs it is suppose to be limited to two people with masks, but again I saw more than that on some chairs. I hope they do not have an increase of infections. Stay safe on the lifts and buses. Wear a mask and gloves at all times and wash your hands when you take off your gloves after touching anything. At least this is what I will be doing.

Once up on the mountains, it is very peaceful this week. Not many people around and some days the weather has been very good, but also a few storms passing through.

Everywhere is looking very green and pleasant. I hope you enjoy the photos of my first hike around Arc 1600 area.

If you want to see the photos please go to the Les Arcs Summer facebook page.

Thanks for that @snowcrazy, We are planning to stay a few nights in the Refuge du Ruitor,, up near the Italian border. There is good walking and climbing in that area.
