4th January 2017

04/01/2017

There is a huge snow storm approaching, and the risk of avalanche’s, particular over the Austrian and Swiss Alps in the next few days will increase. Fresh snow, up to 1m is expected in several ski resorts. This fresh snow will be landing on hard packed snow, making it a forgone conclusion that a few slides will occur.

Avalanche warning for Austria and SwitzerlandThe pisteurs do a marvellous job keeping the slopes safe for us, but take care, particularly when skiing or boarding off piste. Never ski on your own! Ski Line recommends booking a guide if you plan to venture off piste.
