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!)

Deadly Avalanche Hits French Alps

As night follows day, avalanches follow fresh snow coupled with wind. In the PisteHors avalanche report on Friday it said:
The fresh snow arrived as predicted with heavy chutes today over the Northern Alps and at altitude in the Western Pyrenees. These have been accompanied by some strong winds and the existing snow pack is frequently unstable. Backcountry travellers should take care over the coming days, particularly on Sunday where fresh snowfall is expected.

Yesterday a ski mountainneer was killed at La Clusaz and two skiers seriously injured near Chamrousse. The Clusaz party were not wearing avalanche beacons:
