Snow Reports

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

Austrian TV: Uplifts aids

 Poster: A snowHead

I thought that this episode of the Panorama programme: which was shown on Austrian television yesterday might be of interest to some snowHeads. It contains four reports (in German, of course) about mountain access, each about five minutes:
1. Building of the Großglockner Alpine Road
2. Building of the first lifts onto the Kitzsteinhorn glacier at Kaprun
3. Doppelmayr, the lift building firm (includig film of their first T-bar in Zürs 1937)
4. The Schneeberg rack-and-pinion railway
I enjoyed them all. The video should be available in the ORF TVthek for another six days (I don't know whether you need to use a proxy server from the UK).
