It is always good to evaluate the threat of an avalanche before you get to the skiing site. The reason for this is that avalanches are not just a single layer of snow falling from a great height. They are actually a whole season’s accumulated snow.
This means that when the avalanche happens it comes down with tremendous force, and can destroy anything in its path. It is a serious threat for travelers during winter. If you are skiing or planning a snow-activity, you must make sure you learn how to avoid being in an avalanche prone area because prior knowledge will not just save you, it can empower you to save others as well.
