AbstractCase histories are presented of avalanche accidents in Canada that resulted in death, injury or serious destruction of property in the years between 1955 and 1976. They contain a description of the circumstances leading to the accident, the event, and the rescue operation, but they do not include all accidents owing to insufficient information. Whenever possible, weather observations at the closest climatological station are given for the day of each accident and those preceding it. Compilation of case histories will continue and publication of a second volume is anticipated.
