Avalanche Bulletin for Chamonix & Haute-Savoie
In France the Chamonix avalanche bulletin is produced by Météo France and is only availble in French, however the visual part of the avalanche bulletin (BRA) is simple enough to understand.
Météo France provide a daily avalanche bulletin from November onwards. It is separated into 3 areas for the Haute Savoie region. Chamonix is covered in the Mont Blanc area, whereas Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz are covered in the Chablais area.
The Avalanche diagrams relate to the dangerous aspects, these are highlighted in BLACK. The level of avalanche risk is also indicated by the number, which correlates to the risk factor table 1-5, and can often be split into two altitude levels.
If you do not know how to interpret these diagrams and are heading off piste at your resort then consult a member of the Piste Security Team or ask at the lift station.
