Program Description

People who live on mountains have learned to fear the “white death.” In minutes, an entire town can be swallowed up with snow, no chance of survival. Such is the power of an avalanche, perhaps the most sudden of all disasters. Unpredictable, they announce themselves with little more than a thunderous roar moments before onslaught, and can be triggered by a single skier. Raging Planet presents the avalanche in its many forms — snow, rocks, mud and ash — and shows you the dangerous work of those who try to prevent them.
