What does an avalanche sound like?Snow is quiet when it comes down, and it hushes the neighborhood with a stillness, but I have the impression that an avalanche would be loud. What do they sound like?
First silence then like the sound of water rushing through a great water falls, except hollow not full .. this is the best way I can describe it..
From a distance (the best way to experience an avalanche believe me) they sound like thunder rolling through the mountains. Up close they are, indeed, loud but describing the noise might not be foremost in your mind at the time.
An explosion, a steady sound increasing to a crescendo, the rocks and large boulders tumbling together in the snow and a frightening experience.
It sounds very loud, like a bomb has just exploded some rocks.
