PHUSICOS: Snow avalanches at Capet Forest

The hazard at the site is from snow avalanches in the 'Midaou' avalanche path. The avalanches may reach the village of Barèges, and this has occurred numerous times in the past, the last event being in 2013. The slope and the release area have numerous old 'grey' protective structures, the first ones already from the mid 1800's, constituting a true 'museum of avalanche protection structures'. Let's have a look on the works developped by PHUSICOS and listen some explanations from involved stakeholders.
