According to Planetski.eu, 27 people has been killed during last winter season, until the end of March 2021, what is 50% more than 20-year average after 2000.

Among the fatalities was former Olympian Julie Pomagalski, a snowboarder from France who died on 23. March 2021 according to watchers.news.

According to American professionals from Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC), there were slightly more accidents than average at the weekend, especially Saturdays, when more people are usually on the mountains.

“It is not known whether the coronavirus pandemic has an influence on mountain attendance date and the risky behaviour of winter sports enthusiasts,” CAIC said.
