Abstract: 

The need for an avalanche forecasting system in New Zealand is briefly discussed and options relating to approaches to forecasting are outlined. The Craigieburn Range pilot project which operated during the 1982 winter is described by reference to participants, meteorological snow and avalanche observations, the New Zealand Meteorological Service role, the daily routine, and content and dissemination of avalanche forecasts.
