Avalanches occur when a large amount of snow and ice or rock falls suddenly down a mountainside. There are slab (or wet) avalanches and powder snow (or dry) avalanches. They usually happen after storms and are caused by weak layers of snow being unable to support the weight of the snow above it and the overlying snow cracks and breaks away.
