The silent beauty of towering mountains is deceptive. One false move or loud noise can awaken the elements. In a blink of an eye, the smooth white slopes can turn into a raging torrent, with thousands of tons of snow rushing down at the speed of 100 metres per second, obliterating everything in its path. This report from the epicentre of avalanches in the vicinity of Mount Elbrus in the North Caucasus explains the causes of avalanches and ways of determining avalanche-prone mountain areas and ensuring safety.
