Several people are feared to have been caught in an avalanche in the French ski resort of Tignes.
Witnesses said “a lot of people” had been buried, a police spokesperson said.
Media reports said the avalanche had hit skiers.
Last month four snowboarders were killed when an avalanche hit an off-piste area of the same resort.
Tignes said that it appeared to have been set off by a group of skiers higher up.
