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 :-)

Fractured vertebrae

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Mrs Noggy was hit from behind by a out of control youth on Wednesday. Evacuated from the slopes of Avoriaz (skiing anywhere near the hubs was highly dangerous with long snakes, 13+ long, courtesy of ESF, and much thoughtless skiing. The worst I've seen. She has 2 fractured vertebrae and is currently flat on her back in the hospital in Thonon in a full torso brace awaiting an airvac to the UK as soon as she can bear it. She won't be skiing again. The piste medical patrol said they had never been so busy. Avoid Avoriaz in peak weeks if you're not a strong skier - it's just not worth it.

@noggy, my sympathies. Must be really worrying for the both of you. Fingers crossed, best thoughts, etc.

@Paul334, according to the FIS Code, Highway Code for the pistes, usually the person behind is indeed deemed at fault (see many SHds threads debating this at length!). But they've got to have been stopped, given their insurance and personal details, independent witnesses are usually required - and then it becomes a case of the legal people getting involved (usually via the injured person's insurers) in what can sometimes get very complex and lengthy. In my case, though I managed to ID her and get her brought back, only Mr G had actually seen it and stopped (anyone witnessing an accident should stop, but...) and though we got some details and got the Austrian Police involved, it was a bit of a her word versus mine, she didn't appear to have insurance of her own, and the lawyers weren't prepared to run with it when there were 3 different countries involved (hers, Austria and one).

My niece's husband broke 3 vertebrae in s snowboard crash at half term - nobody else involved. He was a few days in Grenoble hospital and is now home - he was driven back by my niece in their camper. He is in a brace, bored and fed up and grumbly and making my niece's life a misery. But it looks as if he'll be fine if he does what he's told.
