Extreme snow levels in the Italian Alps. Analysis of data from two stations in Monte Canin (Julian Alps - Frioul) and representative synoptic situations for snowfalls. The Julian Alps are the most important "water castle" of the Italian territory; she’s are situated on the border with Slovenia and to be ready for about 50 kilometres’ with west-east direction, less than 60 kilometres’ from the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The Mediterranean air masses, triggered by depressions positioned on the Atlantic or centred in the Genoa Gulf, they will rise and determine heavy and recurring rainfall; very abundant throughout the year. From mid November until the mid April, more than 1200 meters, the precipitation are almost exclusively snowy and the snowfall are exceptionally heavy; so in Canin massif two glaciers are found and descending to 1900 meters about. The notable thickness of snow to the ground and the prolonged snow cover favours a very long ski season bath, at same time, determine a frequent releases of large avalanches, that is harmful to the tourism.
