French Avalanche Analysis for 2011/12

The 2011-2012 season in France saw 23 avalanche fatalities in 15 incidents. The figures were skewed by the death of 9 climbers on Mont Maudit in July in a single accident. Since 1990 only 3 seasons have seen less fatalities and 1992/93 fewer accidents. However the perception in the public mind was a season of avalanches hitting ski runs and infrastructure culminating in a massive slide that destroyed an open chairlift at Saint Fran├žois Longchamp on the 2nd of March, 2012.
