In February 1999, an important avalanche activity took place in the Alps. Especially on February 9th, the Péclerey avalanche killed 12 persons in Montroc near Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, in a white zone (but not with no risk). This paper takes the final toll of this deasaster and questions arise concerning avalanche forecasting and prevention tools.
