Avalanches: Weak Snow Conditions and Prone Regions in British Columbia
Weak snow conditions are one of the essential elements for avalanche formation, as they allow soft snow layers to easily slide down a mountainside. Three contributing factors to weak snow conditions include the presence of fresh snow, temperature, and wind, as they all affect snowpack stability and density (Gubler et al., 2017; Masson et al., 2020). Fresh snow, when deposited on an existing snowpack, can create an unstable layer if the depth exceeds 30 cm (Gubler et al., 2017). Additionally, when temperatures are below freezing, snow conditions tend to remain weak (Masson et al., 2020). Finally, the wind is a major factor in the formation of weak snow, as it can cause snow to become loose and form drifts (Gubler et al., 2017). A region in British Columbia, Canada that is prone to snow avalanches is the Coast Mountains. This region is home to many steep slopes and receives an abundant amount of winter precipitation (Jakobsen and Bakke, 2016). Additionally, the Coast Mountains are subject to strong and gusty winds, which can easily create unstable snow conditions (Masson et al., 2020). As the combination of the… Cont…
