Double-the-Average Avalanche Deaths in Europe blamed on “Abundant Snow”

Snowpack is increasing across the planet as low solar activity continues to impact Earth’s climate (mechanisms linked below).

This season’s ‘total snow mass for the northern hemisphere chart’ (shown below) reveals the true state of things.

And as real-world observations always do, they require no MSM intervention, no spin, no propagandizing.

The data speaks for itself:

The peak of this season’s NH snowpack was 500Gts above 1982-2012 average.

The raw data reveals a surprising trend with regards to ‘global’ snow cover over the past 40 years, too.

Data analyst Zoe Phin, of, was curious to know what the global snowfall trend was in this era of “extreme global warming.”

“Luckily,” she writes, “NASA covertly provides us with all the necessary data to figure this out.”

Below were the results of Zoe’s quest:

Global Snowfall (1980-2020)
[0.2773 -> 0.2854 is +2.90%]

According to the “covert” NASA data, global snowfall has increased by nearly 3 percent over the last four decades: going from 0.2773 to 0.2854 decigrams/m2/s, which is +2.90 percent more.

For a detailed look, see below:


Heavy and consistent snowfall buried large swathes of the French Alps this year. According to the official figures, 39 people died in avalanches across in France this season — double the average.

There was a highly unstable snowpack this season, particularly in January, due to exceptional blizzards.

And in March, heavy snowfall was reportedly widespread, with many ski resorts posting as much as 10+ feet (3+ meters) over the period of just a few days.

As a result, the avalanche warning was increased to 4 and 5 (the highest levels) across many slopes.

Ski lifts were largely closed in France due to COVID-19 restrictions. And while the MSM is keen to blame this year’s excess deaths on skiers touring in the off-piste (a similar ‘scapegoating’ to that concocted by CNN in the U.S.), the record-breaking snowfall is clearly a contributing factor — in many eyes, it is the crucial factor.

Back in February, wrote in relation to the inclement conditions: “It is one of the most dangerous periods in recent years across the Alps.”

Adding: “Extreme caution is urged.”


It was a similar picture in Switzerland, where avalanche deaths were up 50 percent this winter.

“It’s been a deadly winter season,” reported in early April, “with significantly more people killed than the average figure in the last 20-year period.”

The grim statistics were detailed in a report by the Swiss Institute for Snow & Avalanche Research (SLF) and cover the period from October 1, 2020 to March 20, 2021.

The SLF report showed that 27 people died in avalanches, with one person still missing, assumed dead.

This compares to the average of 18 deaths to the end of March over a period of 20 years, a rise of 50 percent.

Two time Olympian Julie Pomagalski was among those to have died in Swiss avalanches, which is another contradiction the mainstream narrative that this season’s high death toll was due to inexperienced skiers venturing into the backcounty due to resorts being shut.

“The tragic death of Julie, world snowboard champion and Olympian, leaves the French Olympic team in mourning for one of their own,” said the French National Olympic Committee.

In total, 318 avalanches causing damage –that is, material and bodily injury– were reported to the SLF.

The 20-year average for avalanches is 113.


There have also been a number of avalanche deaths in Norway.

In February, two civilian employees of the Norwegian military were killed on the remote Arctic Ocean island of Jan Mayen, while another person was injured.

“Three employees based at the Armed Forces station on Jan Mayen were on a leisure trip when they were hit by an avalanche, some distance from the station,” said the Norwegian military in a statement.

They have been named as 57-year old Bjoerk Batalden who was on a six-month assignment on the island, and civil engineer Robin Karlsen, 31.

The only inhabitants on the island are the Norwegian military, the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, and a number of polar bears.

Austria and Italy are other European nations to have posted higher-than-average avalanche deaths this season.


A number of sources, including PlanetSKI and the SLF report, have postulated the causes behind this year’s tragically-high death toll. Top of the list is “abundant snow.”

From December until the beginning of February and again in mid-March, the situation was “critical for weeks because of a several episodes of snowfall,” said the SLF.

Constant snow and the formation of layers of windblown snow added to the problem of the old snow layer.

And further jarring with the MSM narrative, the SLF report stresses: “It is not known whether the coronavirus pandemic had an influence on mountain attendance and the risky behavior of winter sports enthusiasts.”

And finally, across the Atlantic –as touched on above– it’s been the deadliest avalanche season on record in the United States. The year also included the deadliest week on record, breaking the 1910 benchmark:

“This year we are seeing a pretty dangerous snowpack, the kind of unique conditions that only come around once every 10 years or so,” said Brian Lazar, deputy director at the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
