Note on avalanche bulletin and corona measures

Main menu


The avalanche bulletin continues to be published to support the security services.


The SLF continues to publish the avalanche bulletin on a regular basis to support the safety services in their work for public safety (protection of settlements and transport routes). Although the avalanche situation is currently calm, winter is not yet over in the mountain region. In order to guarantee public safety until the end of winter, a permanent assessment of the avalanche situation is necessary - even during this extraordinary period.

The Avalanche Bulletin is currently published only once a day at 5 pm. Due to the measures taken because of the corona virus and significantly less feedback from the terrain, the daily publication of the morning bulletins was discontinued on 18 March 2020. In addition, the Avalanche Warning Service has discontinued all regular radio interviews on the snow and avalanche situation since Sunday, 15 March 2020.
