Where do Avalanches Occur
Avalanches occur in the backcountry where we like to play. Most avalanches
occur on slopes between 35 & 45 degrees. Slopes less than 30 degrees rarely
produce avalanches, and slopes greater than about 50 degrees tend to sluff off
the snow often, and not build up slabs, not to say they will never avalanche
down. Stay alert, always pay attention to your surroundings.
