How many people have been killed by avalanches?

Three of the deadliest recorded avalanches have killed over a thousand people each. An ice avalanche occurs when a large piece of ice, such as from a serac or calving glacier, falls onto ice (such as the Khumbu Icefall), triggering a movement of broken ice chunks.

Where was the Avalanche in the North Cascades?

Loose snow avalanches (far left) and slab avalanches (near center) near Mount Shuksan in the North Cascades mountains. Fracture propagation is relatively limited. 15 cm deep, soft slab avalanche triggered by a snowboarder near Heliotrope Ridge, Mount Baker in March 2010. Multiple crown fracture lines are visible in the top-middle of the image.

Can a loud sound cause an avalanche to start?

Contrary to popular belief, avalanches are not triggered by loud sound; the pressure from sound is orders of magnitude too small to trigger an avalanche. Avalanche initiation can start at a point with only a small amount of snow moving initially; this is typical of wet snow avalanches or avalanches in dry unconsolidated snow.

When do avalanches occur in the winter season?

At temperate latitudes wet snow avalanches are frequently associated with climatic avalanche cycles at the end of the winter season, when there is significant daytime warming. As an avalanche moves down a slope it follows a certain pathway that is dependent on the slope’s degree of steepness and the volume of snow/ice involved in the mass movement.
