Abstract: Analysis of avalanche frequency as a function of topographic parameters in Colorado found that the path angle (P) and angle (R) in the last 100 m to the highway explained 80 to 90 percent of the variance. An exponential frequency model with R was developed and successfully tested on independent data from Colorado and Utah.
