|Tools for this tag|
Only snow avalanches that are relatively predictable and that directly affect populations are taken into account. We thus consider the big ones (winter powder avalanches and spring wet avalanches), but not the slab avalanches, well known by skiers and mountaineers, but usually not affecting villages.
