Avalanches in the Alps

BAN_BLOG_AVALANCHE

This seasons poor snow delivery and early warm weather conditions has produced some of the worst avalanche prone mountains in recent memory. Even the most experienced skiers and boarders need to think twice about venturing off-piste this season.

The avalanches in the early season caused multiple deaths across the European Alps ski regions. These deaths are still occurring, with an estimated 24 fatalities in France and Switzerland since Christmas alone. Both experienced and novice skiers and boarders have been caught up in the snow and ice slides, some miraculously escaping with their lives, only sustaining minor injuries.

The risk of getting caught in avalanches is significantly increased this season. If you are determined to venture off-piste then you need to be fully aware of the risks you are putting yourself through. You should always have the correct knowledge and equipment for what you are attempting. Your off-piste equipment you should include at least the following items; a transponder, snow probe, shovel and a helmet. Other safety technology like backpack deploying airbags and body protection are serious items that should be kept in mind.

Please be aware of the risks and take care in the mountains. Do not put yourself in danger.
