Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Are they relatively slow slides?

Relatively, yes probably . Wet avalanches are generally slower anyway, but more lethal if you are buried.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I had assumed that on-piste was reasonably safe from avalanche risk - does it pay even if you ski on piste to take notice of surrounding terrain and the avalanche risk rating, if so what should you be looking out for?

The avalanche risk is only 1. ground avalanches are difficult to predict as the weakness is not within the snow pack, but the junction with the ground, they generally are not started by skiers but if you did get buried I think you would need civil engineering gear to be dug out.
