Abstract: Avalanche Defense Systems in the Starting Zones are common practice in Europe: Several thousand installations have been erected over the last 30+ years by half a dozen specialized manufacturers. A better understanding of their principle is a necessity before they will begin to be used in North America. This paper presents a history of their development and an introduction to one of their manufacturers.
