AbstractCase histories are presented of avalanche accidents in Canada that resulted in death or injury. A first volume describing accidents between 1955 and 1976 was published earlier (NRCC 17292). The present publication contains cases from the winters 1976 to 1978 and a few selected ones from earlier years. They contain a description of the weather, snow conditions, circumstances leading to the accident, the event, and the rescue operation.
