Avalanche risk in Alps

As a reminder to the few of us who activate Alps or other mountains during winter on skis or with snow shoes. Some useful links

These should be applied systematically.

Coming weekend looks quite bad, so only easy slopes without avalanche risk are possible. Since the weather will probably improve on Sunday, in these risky conditions there is some probability of lost lives next Sunday. To be seen.
