Answer

The name for a mass of snow, rock, ice, soil or other material that slides swiftly down a mountain is called an avalanche. Avalanches are caused by several factors, these include weather, snowfall, temperature, wind direction, slope angle and slope orientation. Some times of the year are more dangerous than others for avalanches. The website National Snow and Ice Data Center (nsidc) has helpful tips for avoiding avalanches as well as what to do if you should get caught in one.
