Developing good trip planning and travel habits involves extensive training to balance key contributory factors for avalanche danger evaluation. However, some aspects are not intuitive and need coupling of physical processes for a better understanding. In order to train such complex situations, White Risk offers interactive training tools. Since winter 2013-2014 the web-based platform White Risk (www.whiterisk.org) provides comprehensive avalanche knowledge for both, beginners and professionals. Besides illustrative images, animations, movies and 3D-graphics, we developed interactive tools to challenge the users’ skills, and allow training with immediate feedback. Here, we will point out four unique tools: a) Pattern analyzer: The current avalanche situation can be analyzed based on four typical avalanche patterns. This tool gives a comprehensive guideline for an in-depth avalanche hazard evaluation. b) Energy balance calculator: By regulating air temperature, wind, solar radiation and cloud cover, energy balance is simulated. The tool visualizes whether the snowpack or a human “experiences” warming or cooling. c) Slab generator: This tool allows users to construct a multi-layered slab overlying a weak layer to learn more about triggering mechanisms. d) Comparison of map to 3D-terrain: Transferring terrain information from topographic maps into real terrain is challenging for many backcountry users. An interactive tool offers a direct comparison between a map and a high-resolution 3D terrain model from different view angles. These four tools will further foster our understanding of processes related to avalanche release and help us train our avalanche skills.
