Blizzards: Strong and cold arctic air/winds, bringing up snow, making it really cold which leads to poor visibility in blowing snow. They can last for 4 hours or even for days.

Always stay alert for blizzard warnings! Make sure you have food supply that can last a week.

Avalanches: They occur when a thick layer of snow collapses and slides down a hill/side. Can be triggered by wind, rain, warming temperatures, snow and earthquakes.

If going near mountains, make sure you have a skilled and experienced person with you at all times to help prevent any accidents. If not, you can go to a course where they help you prevent getting stuck in avalanches.
