If you are swept down a hill by an avalanche, try your best to
climb up on the surface of the snow drift, lie low, move in a
crawling position at the bottom of the avalanche, and create
a large hole in your side as you rest.
Try to reach the surface before the snow solidifies. Get rid of
the backpacks you've never been able to give up, which will get
in the way when you're dug out. Save your energy and shout
when you hear someone coming. At the same time, use the stoop,
backstroke or doggie paddle to go to the upstream, escaping to
the edge of the snow flow. When the snow is buried, calm down,
let the saliva flow out so as to judge the bottom, and then strive
to dig up. If you are going upstream, you may have to block the rocks
and ice with your hands, but try to climb onto the surface of the snow.
Ice avalanches include ice towers and collapsed ice walls,
usually caused by a midday heat or glacier movement. A massive avalanche
of snowflakes could cause lower snow slopes to slide, leading to
huge avalanches of the entire mountain. It is impossible to
predict the time and scale of the ice avalanche, but it is possible to
predict the situation of ice avalanche in this mountain
through a long period of observation. If you want to pass
through an unstable ice tower or an ice stream, be quick!
This route is extremely dangerous.
No matter what happens, you must stay away from the avalanche
routes and judge the situation. Instinctively, people run down
the mountains, while snow and ice fall down the mountain too with
speed of 200 kilometers per hour. So running down is dangerous
since people may be buried in snow and ice; however, it's safer to
run alongside or run to higher ground because you can avoid avalanches.
Throw away all the heavy stuff, such as backpacks, skis, poles, etc.
If you are stuck in snow with these objects in the snow, it becomes
more difficult to move. Never escape by skiing. But if you are
on the edge of an avalanche, you can gallop out of danger. However,
if the avalanche catches up with you and you can't get rid of it,
remember to keep your mouth shut so that the snow and ice will not
flow into your throat and lungs to cause suffocation. Firmly grasp
anything solid on the hillside, like standing rock. Even if you
get caught in it for a while, the ice will run out and you'll be out of danger.
