Avalanche Danger Outside the slopes
Avalanche in the Goldsee Valley - march 2005
You can see that the whole slope went down, I am no joking - take a look where the ridge is ,you will see the snow break... Fortunately there were no dead but it fell over a group that was on tour. So the rescue team had to search for some people buried under. Lucky for them ,they were alive.....
The Goldsee valley is a common touring route on the way to Langtaufers valley in Italy.
It's amazing how many people died in avalanches this year in Tirol. Considering that there were very little snowfall during the season, most people I guess didn't take under consideration that the base consisting of rocks and ground is very unstalble and the snow doesn't stick on it...
