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.
