Abstract: Simple methods for estimating avalanche frequency and magnitude have been in use for several years. Three methods are suggested: 1) direct observation, 2) historical records and 3) tree-ring analysis. These methods may be used by commercial ski touring operations to improve aspects of safety and planning.
