the way that people in an avalanche disaster area decrease the damage done by a avalanche is they put up snow fences that are like fences that stand on an angle and they are meant to break and roll with the snow and while the snow is rolling, it's very likely for the snow fences to stick back into the ground and that decreases the avalanches speed so that when it hits it isn't as bad
