How much snow comes down in an Avalanche?



  1. 0 Votes

    Avalanches are a common feature of mountainous terrain throughout the temperate and arctic regions of the earth, and they may fall wherever snow is deposited on slopes steeper than about 30 degrees. Small avalanches, also known as sluffs, occur frequently each winter, and many do not pose a threat. The larger avalanches may encompass slopes a mile or more wide and millions of tons of snow. These fall infrequently but inflict most of the destruction.
