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 :-)

I was inclined to be generous and suggest this is one of those times that you catch a fish this big and a few hours later it was THIS big, but...

Not, it's bull. There is no dual carriageway to cross between Söll and Scheffau, for a start.

Also what Austrian policeman will have any idea what the Duke of Edinburgh award is?!

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

It does sound a bit unlikely.

Though to get to Soll village from the slopes, you do need to cross a main road which goes through an underpass underneath a roundabout. Almost like a dual carriageway...

Wondering why the police interviewed him. Was it because he vandalised the shepherd hut. Having skiied the area i find the story ridiculous but then maybe things were different in 1984😂😂😂😂😂

Also 10 people died in illinois in a 1984 blizzard but nothing online about 25 dying in scheffau

@denfinella, it's two lane not four though (in fairness there may be slip roads joining at the junction, can't remember). And that's now! In 1984... Well I wasn't born then, but I'm prepared to bet that the road wasn't bigger then!

I seem to remember reading this same story in a UK ski magazine in the late 1980s.

I don't buy it!

If the police were everywhere surely locals were well aware that there had been a number of people killed and others presumably missing? I know communications in 1984 aren't what they are now, but I think the message would have spread.

I tend to find people extremely helpful and willing to go out of their way for you in normal circumstances, in circumstances like these I think they would be doing anything they could for you.
