Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers:
Avalanches happen wherever there is snow laying on a sufficient enough angle.
It doesn't matter just don't cause one otherwise you could die, so if you here or see one run for your life
Avalanches usually occur in areas where the degree of the slope is more than 30 degrees. There are also other factors. One key factor is warm days paired with cool nights. This causes snow to melt and then refreeze, creating many different layers. This creates a zone in which avalanches are highly likely, and only need something to set them off, or a "trigger". This will cause the top layer or so to shear off, and bam! avalanche. It is highly unlikely that an avalanche will occur within a ski area, as the slopes are usually way less than 30 degrees, as well as bombing performed on areas where avalanche danger is high. Bombing is exactly what it sounds like: a cannon shoots small bombs towards a slope in order to act as a trigger. But avalanches most likely happen in moutaineous areas
Every 48 hours
Avalanches are most likely to occur in the alpine regions of France, Switzerland and Austria. However avalanches can occur on any steep slope, considering the factors. Within the U.S, Alaska, Colorado and Utah are the states that avalanches occur most often.
The avalanche danger increases with major snowstorms and periods of thaw. More than 80 percent of these occur during or just after large snowstorms. The most avalanche-prone months are, in order, February, March, and January. Avalanches caused by thaw occur most often in April.
Avalanches happen all over the world.
in one year in north America over 100,000 avalanches happen each year
Avalanches are most common in colorado
Beleive it on not, not only do they happen, they happen every 48 hours! source is Discovery channel documentary.. Everest beyond the limit season 3 episode 1
20 or 30 times a year 20,000 each year (this is right ha ha)
well the most obvious answer is avalanches, and because of global warming its bound to happen!
capped snow mountains
yess it does
Avalanches often happen when loose packed snow becomes too heavy for snow lower down a slope to support it. When the snow becomes too heavy, it creates an avalanche.
Most often, people trapped in avalanches are killed by suffocation. If not, it is by either blunt force or hypothermia.
There are many avalanches every year
AnswerAvalanches happen becaause of movement and loud noises. It happens when there is a fresh snowfalll.
Avalanches occur on all steep mountain sides or hill sides because gravity pulls snow down.
Nobody can predict when avalanches happen.
how about on the mountains
Most AVALANCHES happen during late winter or early spring but, There are AVALANCHES in the winter especially right after a storm like for example, if there is a storm and it climbs over a cliff and someone walks on it an AVALANCHE will occurYour welcome for the anwser :)
When there's snow at a right angle a avalanche can occur
Earthquakes.... Volcanoes..... Tsunamis..... Landslides.... Avalanches can happen
Avalanches occur in the back country where we like to play. Most avalanches occur on slopes between 35 & 45 degrees. Slopes less than 30 degrees rarely produce avalanches, and slopes greater than about 50 degrees tend to sluff off the snow often, and not build up slabs, not to say they will never avalanche down. Stay alert, always pay attention to your surroundings
This is impossible to answer. Many avalanches on Mount Everest happen outside of the climbing season so no one can record it.
