A ski tourer triggered an avalanche on the north face of the Dent du Pra yesterday. He escaped without injury.


And in the Vallons du Pra a 19 year old ski tourer was seriously injured when he fell on a steep slope with snow covered rocks. He suffered back injuries and a deep face wound caused by his ski. He was heliported to the University Hospital in Grenoble.
