Abstract: After the Chamonix-Montroc avalanche event in February 1999, the French Ministry of the environment wanted to engage a new examination of the "sensitive avalanche paths", i.e. sites with stakes (in particular habitat) whose operation cannot be apprehended in a simple way. The ordered objective consisted in establishing a tool, a method, making it possible to identify them and to treat on a hierarchical basis them according to the risk which they generate, helping after the risk management (zoning, protection, alert, help).
