Snowslides also known as avalanches are a real threat to skiers, snowboarders and mountain climbers. These are big masses of snow that flow down hillsides with an amazing force that sweeps everything in its path.

It is very smart to carry out these activities with other people, this will increase your safety, your friend can be your rescuer and vice versa.
