The sites with the size of 50·50 m2 having a various probability of avalanche formation were revealed for a given territory covering an area of 3·4 km2. Crossclassification of sites considering their slopes and snow cover thickness was applied. Absolute altitude of a site, it's orientation to a prevailing wind direction and measure of terrain curvature were taking into account in computation of snow thickness. The Windows applications GIS Idrisi and mapping system Surfer were jointly used for the analysis of maps.
