Avalanche reports

Avalanche reports

Always read the forecast before setting off

Mountains can be dangerous – even in and around a ski resort.

With many steep, wind scoured slopes and ridges at the far end of the ski resort, there are several danger zones at Merano 2000. Whenever the resort is open, a team of experts carries out a hazard analysis and decides whether any avalanches need to be triggered in a controlled setting. When the resort is closed, however, it is not possible to regularly check the terrain and trigger any potentially dangerous snowpack. During that time, all access to the ski resort is therefore strictly prohibited.

Whenever you leave the slopes, please be aware that you are entering into open, uncontrolled terrain – meaning that you should be both well-equipped and well-informed. All access is at your own risk and responsibility.

Please remember: Always carefully read the latest avalanche report and forecast before you set off!
