It’s spring again, but nothing can stop you from going on a ski vacation. However, the danger of avalanches is very evident this season. So here are some facts you need to know to fully understand Bahman.

Avalanche or “slippery snow” is any amount of snow that slips on a mountain slope. It can be compared to landslides, but only with snow instead of land. As you approach the end of the slope, you gain more speed and power, and even the smallest snowplows become very dangerous.

There are two types of avalanches. The first case is known as a surface avalanche. Occurs when a layer of snow with different properties slips on another layer of snow. The second avalanche is called full depth, which occurs when a snow surface slides from the ground to the surface.

Why does it occur? The snow that has accumulated on the surface can not withstand the full weight. When other factors are introduced, such as the vibration of a person’s steps, the snow loosens and an avalanche occurs. Other factors include major temperature changes, rapid wind speeds, and man-made effects.

Spring conditions may be the time of year when frequent avalanches occur, but when a regular cycle of freezing and thawing begins, it is easier to predict its stability compared to the cold winter months.

Freezing at night and thawing during the day is a classic process in the spring. During the freezing phase, the snow pack is at its strongest. As the temperature drops below freezing, it converts water to ice, creating a “skeleton” that holds the snow together. Then, as the sun rises (initially the eastward slopes warm up), a melting phase occurs and the ice skeleton that holds the snow bag together melts.

In freezing and thawing conditions, the snow pack is in its strongest state in the freezing stage and in its weakest state in the melting stage. In between these stages, the skiing conditions are relatively safe, as long as the people were not in the area too late the day before.

Now the question is: how should you not get caught during your ski trip in Bahman? The most common way to escape a person is to identify the location. If you know when an avalanche is likely to fall, you are less likely to suffer from it. The main thing is to know how the avalanche path appears. Most of its routes are obvious and appear as open slopes, bowls or bays. Other common symptoms are bent or damaged trees.

It is important to understand the potential dangers you may face during your skiing vacation. Avalanches are not a common phenomenon, so you should always be prepared.
