  • Avalanche experts recognize that short slopes have different runout characteristics when compared to taller slopes. There have been several residential avalanche accidents in Canada on or near short slopes, yet little research has been conducted in this field. Data were collected at 48 short slope paths in four Canadian mountain ranges, including the Coast, Columbia, Rocky Mountains and Quebec ranges. Field studies included topographic surveys and estimation of extreme runout distance in each… CONTINUE READING
