We report avalanches here on PlanetSKI. 

Unlike some ski resorts who tend to try to keep them quite and other web sites that don’t want to upset anyone we believe it is right to keep people informed about the dangers out in the mountains and what can be done to reduce risks.

We have just reported this fatal accident in Switzerland and have this editorial view on it all.

The BBC’s reporter, Nick Higham, has been in Scotland with the rescue services from Cairngorm to see how it is done.

See the video here.
