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 :-)

Help - liftpass with "Carte Neige"

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I was looking to book my liftpass online here and I see there's a tick box for "Assurance". Can anyone tell me whether this is the much-discussed (and extremely worthwhile) "carte neige"? Ticking the box increases the price of a 6-day pass by about 15 euros which seems about right from what I've read elsewhere on the Forum.

thanks

Buy it! - Equivalent to 4-5 beers? Ski with the smugness only Carte Neige skiers enjoy, of having Chauffeur assisted removal from the slopes!

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

Red Leon, that looks very much like the Carre Niege (the one which gets you off the mountain without any quibbling in France, emergency treatment, and maybe repatriation if required.)
The Carte Niege is more of a 'season ticket' and might also work in places other than Europe. Not sure about its scope.

I get it too! Thoroughly recommend the hassle free Carre Neige! I'd also make enquiries via that email address to ensure that is what it is too just to make doubly sure!

Carre Neige is well worth the '4-5 beers' it costs! I would say I was walking proof but I'm not doing too much of the walking at the moment!

Debs, how goes the rehabilitation?


*still* awaiting an appointment to see the specialist - he has gone on holiday so I can't even see him privately! Thus me and my recently purchased TENS machine are sat at home not doing very much! I've even asked for them to book me in for an MRI scan whilst he is away but it would seem that is too logical and "How do I know I need an MRI scan?" Shocked Puzzled I'll write an update when I find out more Confused

DZJ1978, (off topic) If you were a bit closer to the Channel, I'd suggest applying for the right to go to France for treatment. There's some sort of system for doing that now via your Health Authority. It's free by mutual arrangement between the two countries, as far as I know... apart from the travel involved).

When you want to see a specialist in France you ring up and make the appointment. You don't even need a referral. In most cases you can get fixed up to see him/her within a week or so.

PG - That's where I got the injury! Allegedly he has only gone away for a week so it is entirely possible he's off skiing (didn't look to be the boarding type!). Hopefully by the end of the week i'll have an appointment through and if I don't then you can guarantee I'll be phoning them at 9am on Monday morning to find out how long and also find out how long for a private consultation too.

Thanks, guys

Clearly I don't know my 'carte' from my 'carre'. Embarassed

However, I think the answer to my question of whether the "Assurance" on offer on the website is the much-vaunted 'get-me-off-this-bl@@dy-hill' thingy is a big fat YES. Rest assured, I'll be ticking the box shortly.

DZJ1978, Bad luck on the injury & missing specialist situation. Get well soon

Red Leon, May the Force be with you and may you never need to use Carre Neige!
