The five typical avalanche problems were defined by the Association of European Avalanche Warning Services (EAWS) to describe typical situations that occur in the terrain. Every avalanche problem has a different cause and requires appropriate behavior. In the avalanche situation report, the prevailing avalanche problems are also stated in the danger description.
Here is an initial overview of the five avalanche problems.
Avalanche problems and danger patterns have one thing in common: they indicate typical, recurring and usually obvious dangerous situations.
The difference lies in the viewing level. While avalanche problems provide an initial rough overview of possible sources of danger (e.g. fresh snow), danger patterns delve deeper into the matter and look for the causes of the problem (e.g. problem caused by too much fresh snow on a weak layer).
Danger patterns therefore describe possible scenarios or processes that lead to the respective avalanche problem.
Here you will find the 10 danger patterns as a link to the videos, which will provide you with further information.
You can find further information about danger patterns in the book avalanche. by Rudi Mair & Patrick Nairz
