can someone tell me why CO snowpack is generally weaker than say a PNW snowpack? reason i ask is i have been doing a bit of research on avalanches and it seems that CO and UT seem to always lead the nation in avalanches and any deaths. Just curious as to why they are more common than other snowfields.
Its also very hard to find any information on avalanches in Australia as we rarely have the snowfall amounts that would cause a slide.
