A series of avalanches after the heavy snowfalls of last week has claimed the lives of at least 8 people across The Alps. There have been a few slides here in Verbier but fortunately no-one has been hurt. Mountain Guides are warning all skiers and boarders to be extra vigilant and fear that many people are taking unecessary risks.One of our instructors here at European Snowsport, James Cove has, written the story for the BBC web site.
And another for the SCGB on a lighter note….
