Avalanche Avalanche Safety Risk factors Environmental risk factors SLIDE SUB-TITLE

75% of Avalanches happen on a slope of between 34 and 49 degrees Altitude plays a major role in risk. Higher elevations tend to mean colder temperatures and more wind. Lower elevations tend to mean warmer temps, and heavier loading (Rain / Wet snow). Trees. Sparse trees are not good anchors, heavy tree coverage means good anchors. Wind. Leeward sides of hills / mountains can create cornices or wind slabs. Wind can deposit snow 10 times more rapidly than snow falling without wind.

Sun. Weak layers tend to persist longer on the shady North facing slopes. As temps rise the South facing slopes will load more heavily and create wet avalanches Gear SLIDE SUB-TITLE Gear

Recovery Gear, not Rescue Gear Use resources first, not gear! Snow Shovel. Durable metal, not plastic Avalanche Beacon / Transceiver Avalanche Probe 320CM or longer (320cm is about 10.5 feet) Avalanche backpack / Air bag backpack / Avalung vest Training and more training. Practice Annually
