Abstract: Different types of instruments have been developed and tested during the last decade to help local forecasters. Meteorological instruments adapted for their remote use in an alpine environment, special instruments to measure snow depth, snow water equivalence, snow cover stratigraphy and avalanche occurrences are described. Some basic problems of avalanche forecasting based on localized initial state measurements are discussed.
