In winter, the avalanche bulletin consists of an interactive map, including danger descriptions and a section headed "Snowpack and weather". In low season the avalanche bulletin appears in plain text format in the event of heavy snowfall.
Interactive avalanche bulletin
The internet and smartphone versions of the interactive avalanche bulletin consist of two parts:
Hazard map, including danger description:
The danger description is given directly on the zoomable hazard map. As users move their mouse over the hazard map, the individual regions are highlighted. Clicking the map opens a window containing the relevant danger description. The hazard map and danger descriptions are issued at 5 pm and, depending on the avalanche situation during the winter, updated at 8 am (see “Publication times and validity”).
Snowpack and weather
The description of the snowpack, weather and outlook for the following days is only updated in the evening.
Print versions of the avalanche bulletin
Two versions of the Avalanche Bulletin are available in .pdf format for printing:
- Full avalanche bulletin: This has the same content as the interactive avalanche bulletin: hazard map, danger description for all assessed regions, and the 'Snowpack and weather' section.
- Regional hazard maps: Hazard map of a warning region with a danger description. Ideal for display in freeriding regions.
