Swiss Up! - Avalanches

Swiss Up! // Community// Explore Switzerland// Science & Technology// Health// General // By Tay Kinnear // Jan. 31, 2019

Every year 90% of avalanche deaths are due to off-piste skiing. As this year's avalanche season has so far been treacherous and sometimes deadly, we explore the history of avalanche warning and rescue systems on today's episode of Swiss Up!

Keep up to date with avalanche risk and warnings throughout the country with the Avalanche Bulletin or check out Météo Swiss for weather updates.
