Abstract: From 27 January to 24 February 1992, METEO-FRANCE covered the winter olympic games meteorological operations in ALBERTVilLE. The avalanche risk forecasting (AR.F.) was one point of this assistance that has been operated through an exemplary collaboration between METEO-FRANCE and the security services of ski resorts, the "SAVOIE" road services and the mountain policemen. The "AR.F." team's objective was to give some relevant avalanche risk estimations on the access roads and information on avalanche warning to people in the mountains.
