Dry avalanches are stunningly beautiful and roar down the mountain, light and fluffy, like clouds of powder.

Watch the video below of the Italian avalanche:

Beneath the misty powder cloud is a rushing mass of snow. As the snow rushes through the air it kicks up an envelope of powder, appropriately enough called a “powder cloud.” The beautiful part of a powder avalanche.

In front of the powder cloud is the invisible “air blast” that pushes out in front of the moving snow. The air blast can travel fast enough to explode your lungs if you are caught by the full impact of the blast.
