Abstract: This paper describes the current state of MEPRA, an expert system for avalanche risk forecasting. The author presents the system characteristics (knowledge base architecture, inference engine) and a ponctual validation at the location of a snow weather station. The last part shows the new MEPRA which was used during the winter olympic games of Albertville (FRANCE) connected with a meteorological analysis system ,SAFRAN, (Durand and alii, 1992) and a numerical model to simulate the snow cover, CROCUS (Brun and alii, 1992).
