Fédération Internationale des Patrouilles de Ski

A thought for the avalanche victims

All members of FIPS and ski patrols throughout the world morn the deaths of at least five people caught in the avalanche that occurred at Bahcesaray in Van province, Turkey on 4 February 2020 and the subsequent tragic loss of life of more than 30 rescuers and the injury of many more following a second avalanche on the following day while working to free those buried in the first avalanche. Our thoughts are with you.

Rescue always – Safety first of all
