Department for snow and avalanches
A short view of our service
By Janko Merše and Andrej Velkavrh
Slovenia has problems with snow avalanches, but
compared with countries like Switzerland, France
or Austria inhabited areas are not at such high
elevations as there.
There are some mountain roads…
…or mountain passes, which are regularly caught
by avalanches. Only in extreme winters some
houses or villages could be endangered.
We have some ski resorts, which can be,
regardless of rather low elevation, caught
by wery intensive snowfall
Therefore our main goal
during winter is dealing with mountain roads,
tour skiers and alpinists. Injured and dead can be
in 99% found among them.
