RSSXML - Incident Summaries via the Avalanche Center RSS Incidents Channel

We only list the most recently added avalanche incidents here on the front section page. They may not be chronological, they are generally added to the top whenever we create the report file. All other incidents since October 1998 can be located using the search page.

Due to a lack of resources we are behind on archiving some incidents from the last few years. Some still do not have complete files or advisory links. They can be found on the page for that year, or by searching. They are also listed on our working archive page. You can help support our public archive and other work here.
