Avalanches are a facinating, but above all dangerous phenomenon. As one of our core competencies, we investigate how avalanches form, what forces are at work within them and how one can protect oneself from them. Additionally, we offer various services, such as the avalanche bulletin, consultations on avalanche protection measures and expert oppinions on avalanche accidents.
