Avalanche risk table

by:Chairlady     2020-07-07
The avalanche is a fast flow of snow on a slope, triggered natural or by human factors.About safety - avalanche terrain:- Terrain management: must avoid take a trip if an individual it's risking to be expose to an avalanche surfaces. Advice: stay away from exposed rock, do not travel under cutting slopes, stay away from terrain traps (gulleys that can be filled in) and do not travel over convex proceeds.- Group management: involve the management of the audience to not involve them into an avalanche (entire group or just specific member). Advice: do not travel alone, must the escape route, wear warm gear, camp only in safe zones, better route (slope) selection and a person person must pass instead of a slope (maintain separation).- Risk Factor Awareness: gather the same amount of data as you can, such as: meteorological history of the area, current snow condition, weather forecast and physical condition of the group.- Leadership: to take a good decision, you must know to read and interpret the risks of an avalanche.Search and rescue equipment: Shovels (essential for digging), Beacons (avalanche transceivers), Avalung (new device which include: an exhaust pipe, a flap valve, an exhaust pipe too mouth piece), Probes (collapsible, portable), Avalanche cords (~10 meter long red cord) and Other devices (Personal Locating Beacons (PLBs) or Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB)). Avalanche size table in Europe / United States:1 - Low / Green: Human triggered (avalanches) - unlikely, Travel - generally safe, Natural triggered (avalanches) - unlikely, Snow - very stable2 - Limited / Yellow (Moderate): Human triggered (avalanches) - possible, Travel - caution in steeper terrain, Natural triggered (avalanches) - unlikely, Snow - moderately stable3 - Medium / Orange (Considerable): Human triggered (avalanches) - probable, Travel - increasingly cautious in steeper terrain, Natural triggered (avalanches) - possible, Snow - moderately or weakly stable4 - High / Red: Human triggered (avalanches) - likely, Travel - not recommended, Natural triggered (avalanches) - likely, Snow - not very stable5 - Large / Red/Black border (Extreme): Travel - should be avoided, Snow - generally unstable, Human triggered (avalanches) - certain, Natural triggered (avalanches) - certainMountain Route Resources:All about AvalancheAvalanche classification and risk table
