Avalanche Danger Scale
Learn more about the five-level avalanche danger scale. In 1993, the European Avalanche Warning Services agreed on a common five-level avalanche danger scale, this was an important milestone in the history of the EAWS. The five danger levels were later introduced worldwide and today form the standard of modern avalanche forecasting.
The primary purpose of European Avalanche Warning Services (EAWS) is to support its Members in preventing the loss of lives and damage due to avalanches by providing society with efficient and effective avalanche forecasting and warning services.
