Avalanche Swiss Ski Resort

An avalanche barreled down a mountainside and into the ski resort of Saas-Fee, Switzerland last week. The avalanche produced a cloud of snow that blanketed the small mountain town, temporarily reducing visibility.

Last week, authorities said a wide area in the Swiss Alps was at a high risk for avalanches. In nearby Zermatt, the threat of avalanches prompted officials to close railway lines and roads into the town for four days, meaning the resort was only accessible by helicopter.
