  • Avalanches: 

    Avalanches: 

    In the summer and autumn, avalanche bulletins are published only in the event of heavy snowfall.
    Even if the SLF does not publish an avalanche bulletin, due consideration is to be given to the avalanche situation especially if snow has fallen recently.
    The criteria governing the publication of an avalanche bulletin in the summer and autumn are described in the Interpretation Guide.
    Depending on the snow and avalanche situation, the regular publication of avalanche bulletin recommences in November/December.
