Chair: Liam Fitzgerald
400+ participants; 59 papers; 11 countries


The largest number of formal presentations ever at ISSW allowed a wide range of topics including snowpack properties, avalanche warning systems in Switzerland, blowing and drifting snow, avalanche policy and litigation and control methods. Even a paper on bacterial protein for snowmaking was given.

This large number of papers was accommodated by having concurrent sessions with many papers available at the conference individually for a copying charge.

13 posters and 12 commercial exhibits were presented. Numerous attendees were forced to leave when winter arrived early in the Pacific Northwest and ski areas began to open.
