My friends and I are building this web site, in the hope that it will give you pleasure, and perhaps inspire you to visit and walk somewhere in the Alps. The idea is you can have fair use, but you can't make money or otherwise profit from it without permission:


Unless stated, all material (texts, images, recordings, maps etc) is copyright Judy. If you would like to make information from these pages accessible to others in paper or electronic form, please email me for written permission before you do so. Feel free however to use anything for your own private (non-collective, non-commercial) use - just for you. In any case, the origin of anything on these pages shall be clearly marked (a link back to this site would be appreciated). Infringement of copyright will result in appropriate legal sanctions.

Linking to this site

Feel free to link to any page, so that the whole page is displayed, however information may not be linked to individually, nor may pages or images from this site be linked to from a framed site to leave viewers with the impression that content on this site is part of another site. For example, a link that shows a picture or map must display the whole surrounding page. Thank you for your understanding.


Trade names and trademarks of organisations mentioned are acknowledged. Many thanks to everyone who's come up with ideas and suggestions - I'll be happy to credit you by name; please just let me know.

Your privacy and cookies

I don't use cookies and do not collect or store any private information, such as names, emails or addresses, unless you choose to email me, in which case I won't give your email address or name to anyone else without your agreement.

The plan is to publish handbooks for sections of the Via Alpina during 2008. If you would like me to let you know as they become available, then I will keep and use your email address just for that purpose - I won't send you random mail shots for soap-on-a-rope. If you want your email address and details deleted, just let me know - easy.


Views and information supplied on this site or on sites I link to is supplied without warranty. In particular, please do not rely on information here for planning purposes. Mountains can be dangerous places, and you assume all responsibility for using or relying on anything that appears here.

Comments, stuff that doesn't work and broken links

I appreciate your mailing me with any comments or questions - can't promise to answer quickly if I'm out on the trail, but I'll reply eventually.

If you find anything that's confusing, doesn't seem to work, or links that break, please let me know - thanks for that.
