When a great torrent of snow and ice roars down a mountain at more than 200 miles an hour, there is no power on Earth to stop it. From the Alps to the Himalayas, the Rockies to the Andes, an avalanche can strike without warning, leaving the unwary no time to escape and overwhelming everything in its path.
