The Musée des Ormonts has reopened its doors with a new exhibition entitled "AVALanche"! This exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of a long series of major avalanches in Les Ormonts.

To mark the 40th anniversary of a series of major avalanches in Les Ormonts, the Musée des Ormonts will be staging an exhibition called "AVALanche", which will deal with scientific aspects such as nivology and the different types of avalanche. The Musée des Ormonts is located in the historic hamlet of Vers-L'Eglise.
