Winter hiking

Safety and avalanches


The local sponsors and organizers are responsible for the design and operation of the winter offers communicated by SwitzerlandMobility. They decide on the appropriate measures required to ensure safety, e.g. in the event of avalanche danger.

Information on avalanche safety

The WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF issues avalanche bulletins, snow maps, reports and a wealth of useful information on current snow conditions in Switzerland as well as guidelines for safe behaviour in snow.
