What causes avalanches?

it is caused when rapid temperature changes occur, a heavy snow

fall, or strong winds. Skiers or snowboarders also set off

avalanches because they will ski on the fresh loose snow and if the

conditions are right the snow will crack beneath them. Loud noises

do not set off avalanches. If you don't believe me look up

"Avalanches 101" on youtube.com or nationalgeographic.com
