This tag is used to map certain features erected to protect hamlets, roads, pistes etc. from avalanches or to keep snow in place, so that there will not be avalanches.

The tag avalanche_protection=snow_bridge is used to map the kind of construction pictured in the info box more specifically and helps making them distinguishable from other barrier like avalanche countermeasures.
