Avalanche in Zermatt, January 2018

There was a large avalanche on the road between Täsch and Zermatt yesterday. This video shows a huge avalanche pouring across the road for over two minutes, taking trees with it on the way.



Avalanche Detection System

Previous visitors to our website will already know about the extremely effective avalanche detection system that we wrote about on this blog a year ago.

This system has already detected 45 avalanches this season and the ability to predict these natural occurrences meant that yesterday the road was already closed, preventing any injuries.

The avalanche warning system was the first of its kind to be installed in the world – just another reason that marks Zermatt out as one of the best ski resorts in the world.  For more information on how to visit yourself, please contact us.
