Caption: Reportage with a ski patrol team at the Avoriaz ski resort in Haute Savoie, France. The team are responsible for marking out the ski slopes, providing first aid to skiers, evacuations on the slopes as well as off piste and controlled avalanches. Some ski patrol team members are specialised in weather readings. Weather readings (temperature and snow structure) are carried out twice a day and handed over to Meteo-France. Meteo-France then passes on information about the risk of avalanches to all ski resorts.
