This thesis is written as a part of my master in Applied Physics and Math- ematics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Statens Vegvesen (The Norwegian Public Road Administration) proposed the project, wanting to research what data science could do to help them im- prove avalanche safety on the road network. As a statistician with an interest in avalanches, it seemed like a very interesting project where knowledge from many di erent domains had to be combined. Also, using knowledge about statistics and technology to solve a practical problem was a motivational fac- tor to me.
