Main menu


For all those engaging in activities off piste, avalanche danger is a constant companion. Preventive measures are therefore necessary in order to reduce the avalanche risk. Our avalanche prevention platform White Risk offers numerous explanations and films on this subject.


The module White Risk EXPLORE can be used both for individual learning purposes and as a reference work on avalanche science. A collection of texts, charts, animations and films help winter sport participants to understand avalanches and to learn how to reduce risk by behaving appropriately. The White Risk content is easily understood by both beginners and advanced learners.
