Heavy snowfall this month that smothered mountains in the West has also paved the way for a perilous setting, creating some of the meanest avalanches in recent memory. Officials are amazed about the frequency and intensity of avalanches since a series of snowstorms struck early this month, although the number of related fatalities hasn’t spiked this season. A string of warnings to avoid the dangerous, mountainous backcountry has helped, experts say. Seventeen people from the Cascades to the Rockies have died in an avalanche this winter, 11 of them since early February.
