This document, prepared for the Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research of Davos, Switzerland (SLF), is a detailed compilation of the necessary research and methods used to build and test a web site that features images from mountain web cameras and detailed information on various aspects of Swiss mountain environments. By using focus group testing, we arrived at the conclusion that the final revision of the International Year of Mountains subsections, "Webcam" and "Enzyklopadie," are intriguing, usable, comprehensible and, above all, educational.
