National avalanche accident statistics are collected and archived by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC). Supporting avalanche statistics are collected and submitted to CAIC by the local avalanche centers around the country and by Special thanks to Mark Moore, retired NWAC forecast director, for his efforts maintaining the local NW avalanche database for many decades. The charts below are updated periodically, usually in the late Spring and once again in the Fall.
