Dangerous snowstorms

Snowstorms are characterized by fine snowflakes, which, due to their delicacy, produce breathing difficulties and must be treated with great respect.

Las peligrosas tormentas

These powerful forces of nature generate fear and stupor in every   mountaineer  .  Snowstorms  are characterized by their fine snowflakes that due to their delicacy produce respiratory difficulties and must be treated with great respect. Due to the  gusts  there is a sharp drop in  temperature  that strikes on the muscles weakening the adventurer.

Another serious drawback that should be taken into account are the small  neviscas  that make it impossible to hide from the snow, are introduced by the dress finding the minimum hole, thus reaching the body, losing the little heat that was preserved.

As a result of the snowstorms, several mountaineers have lost their lives because of the  freezing . It's very difficult to escape from it, but it's not impossible.

On these occasions it is recommended to look for a  shelter  where snow does not reach so easily, try to maintain body heat and wait for the storm to calm down.
