Avalanche Swiss-Italian Alps Weather Phenomenon Postcard
An avalanche shatters the Alpine silence of Mount Liskamm on the Swiss-Italian border near Zermatt in September, 1977. Although there were no known fatalities in this incident, avalanches claim dozens of lives each year. Less than 200 miles away in the Italian Dolomites, some 6,000 troops were killed by avalanches in one day during WWI.
