Short Term Development

The team at the Avalanche Warning Service extends a debt of thanksfor the outstanding work at headquarters and collaboration in the field, including at the 17 manned stations, numerous afternoon observers, Alpine Police, the BMI helicopter pilots, the weather forecasts from ZAMG and the countless field reports from backcountry skiers and freeriders. A debt of thanks also to our translator, Jeffrey McCabe, for his vivid English reports every day.
