Information regarding an area exposed to an avalanche. Mapped based on analysis of the terrain and of signs that avalanches leave in their path, mainly, in forests. In Avalanche Zones, avalanches occur frequently and are of different sizes. Avalanche Zones have been systematically mapped throughout the region. They are shown in orange. There are two types of Avalanche Zones: zones where avalanches usually follow the same path, shown in orange, and zones where avalanches usually follow different paths, shown in pale orange.
