Expert’s thoughts following Tignes avalanche


Following this week’s tragic Tignes avalanche, interesting words from expert Dominique Létang. In French.

Dominique Létang, HAT Partner, is Director of L’Anena (French Association for the Study of Snow and Avalanches). Speaking on France Bleu Pays de Savoie, he talks about the Tignes avalanche and this year’s particular off-piste conditions.

The avalanche risk of 3 that day (and most of that week) is a risk attributed by Meteo France to roughly one day in three, every season.
