Snow Avalanche Statistics

The statistics section has graphs and links to graphs concerning avalanche accident statistics. We now have charts for the US for 2023-24 posted as well as an interactive map. We have finalized and published our book on the 2021-22 US fatalities, which is available online for free to members from the welcome page when they log in. We can also send a free Kindle version to your device if you're a member. We are working on the 2022-23 edition now!

June 16, 2023 - We are in the process of moving this seasons incidents into the database. Most can now be found by searching the avalanche accidents database. The ones still shown here will not yet come up in searches.

We only list the most recently added avalanche incidents here on the front section page. They may not be chronological. 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. Many are listed on our working archive page. Help support our public archive and other work.
