Avalanches happen in a series of stages. First, while the temperature is cold and there is a heavy snowfall, the snow will stick to the ground. Suppose that what happens next is that the air temperature changes after the snow has fallen. Then, a layer of the snow may weaken. Next, suppose that a skier lands on the weakened snow. The snow may then slide away from the ground in pieces or slabs. As slabs head downhill, their gravity is greater then the snow underneath. They may slide down a steep slope, creating a major avalanche.
According to the passage, which phrase describes the second stage of avalanche?
A. The temperature is cold
B. As the slabs head downhill
C. The air temperature changes
D. A layer of the snow may weaken
Is it C?
