Short summary
This article implements a combination of historical and geographical methods leading to the reconstruction in the Vosges Massif of more than 700 avalanches that have occurred since the late eighteenth century. Results confirm the role of the historian in contextualizing and evaluating such data and transforming them into information relevant for understanding risk changes. This approach is of great utility when conventional sources are sparse and problematic to assemble.
