Which kind of avalanche produces the most damage?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are three types of avalanche: powder, wet snow and slab. The one that does the most damage is Wet Snow, that occur mostly in the spring, when the temperature is high and the snow will transform quickly. They start at one point then move out as they go down, and they move slow, but they are extremely dense, once they cover something they are solid. 

    Powder avalanches are fast, starting at one point and grow, reaching speeds of 250 mph. Slab avalanches occur when there is an unstable layer of snow, almost impossible to detect until it starts to fall.
