British Colombia avalache victim dies in hospital.

A 36-year-old man has died in hospital in Calgary, Alberta, after being caught in an avalanche near Golden in British Colombia on Friday 9 February 2018. The as yet unnamed victim was buried under 3 metres of snow then dug out by witnesses to the event in the Hospital Creek area, which is popular with snowmobiling enthusiasts, and airlifted to the hospital due to the severity of his injuries, but could not be saved and died on 16 February.

The approximate location of the 9 February 2018 Hospital Creek avalanche. Google Maps.

Avalanches are caused by the mechanical failure of snowpacks; essentially when the weight of the snow above a certain point exceeds the carrying capacity of the snow at that point to support its weight. This can happen for two reasons, because more snow falls upslope, causing the weight to rise, or because snow begins to melt downslope, causing the carrying capacity to fall. Avalanches may also be triggered by other events, such as Earthquakes or rockfalls. Contrary to what is often seen in films and on television, avalanches are not usually triggered by loud noises. Because snow forms layers, with each layer typically occurring due to a different snowfall, and having different physical properties, multiple avalanches can occur at the same spot, with the failure of a weaker layer losing to the loss of the snow above it, but other layers below left in place - to potentially fail later.

In this instance authorities in British Colombia had issued several avalanche warning for the area, after a series of storms blowing in from the northeast Pacific had dumped repeated layers of snow onto the mountainside.

  3. Assalamualaikum Wr,Wb.
    Saya dari Pak Adau Ronal bersyukur bahwa saya masih bisa di beri kesempatan untuk menulis dan berbagi kepada teman-teman melalui Situs/web ini,bahwa dulunya saya adalah seorang pengusaha dibidang matterial, dan sekarang saya terpaksa gulung tikar akibat di tipu teman sendiri,ditengah tagihan utang yang menumpuk,istri pun meninggalkan saya,ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini saya coba buka internet untuk cari lowongan kerja,dan secara gak sengaja saya liat situs pesugihan MBAH KASURI, awalnya saya ragu dan gak percaya tapi setelah saya lihat pembuktian MBAH KASURI di Situs/webnya Saya pun langsug hubungi beliau dan Semua petunjuk MBAH saya ikuti dan hanya 3 jam beliau laksanakan pesugihan dana gaib untuk saya,Alhamdulilah Ternyata benar-benar terbukti dan dana 3 Miliar yang saya minta benar-benar ada di tangan saya, semua utang saya pada lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha, kata-kata beliau yang selalu saya ingat setiap manusia bisa menjadi kaya, hanya saja terkadang mereka gak tau atau salah jalan.Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir dari tuhan.maksudnya takdir macam apa? bahwa tuhan gak perna memberi takdir yang buruk terhadap kita,semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian bahwa seberapa kuat kita bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan gak akan merubah nasib kita jika kita gak bisa berusaha untuk merubahnya.
    Dan satu hal yang perlu kita ingat,“Bahwa jika kita terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun,namun jika kita mati miskin itu merupakan salah kita.”karena kita terlahir didunia ini di beri kesempatan untuk berusaha agar tetap jadi orang yang sukses.dan saran ini saya dapat dari beliau bermanfaat sekali bagi saya makasih ya MBAH atas semua saran anda MBAH sekali lagi saya sangat berterimakasih kepada MBAH KASURI dan bagi anda yang ingin seperti saya silahkan hubungi MBAH KASURI di nomer ini
