Avalanche summaries are free-from text descriptions of the avalanche activity observed in an area.

NOTE While entering information about avalanche activity in free form text can be very efficient, the value of this format is limited as this information cannot be displayed graphically or included in any analyses. We therefore discourage the use of this observation type.
