Title The Werner-Henneberger Accident
Subject Avalanches--Accidents--Switzerland; Werner, Buddy, 1936-1964; Henneberger, Barbara
Description Each year the Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research compiles a comprehensive report on snow and avalanches in the Swiss Alps. This report is published about a year and a half after the winter in question. From the report for the winter of 1963/64 we have translated the account of an accident which had widespread publicity both in the U.S. and abroad. This is the accident which caused the death of Buddy Werner, America's outstanding racer, and Barbara Henneberger from Germany. Because many conflicting reports were circulated here about the accident and its subsequent legal ramifications, we have translated the official Swiss Government report in order to present to the American skiers an accurate account of the events.
