Particular attention is needed to all those who want to climb a mountain bike or walk in the White Mountains, or to those who have facilities near snowy slopes.

In recent days, avalanches are increasingly emerging as they sweep the Madares [bare of any vegetation for high mountain areas] of the White Mountains as large volumes of snow have accumulated, the layers of which are weakened by the rise in temperature.

According to information from the avalanche, a building was demolished and many trees were "drifting".

According to the President of the Mountaineering Club of Chania, Stavros Badogiannis, the phenomenon of avalanches in the White Mountains is unusual, but it can happen.
