Avalanches are a fascinating, but above all else, a dangerous phenomenon. We are therefore researching how they form and travel and how we can optimally protect ourselves. By issuing avalanche warnings for the Swiss Alps and the Jura Mountains, we perform an important national service. More information about our avalanche research and services at the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF.
