Overview

The sky was clear when Randy Kraxberger left the visitor center at Olympic National Park in Washington State. He was looking forward to skiing alone near Hurricane Hill. After several hours, however, the sky began filling with snow. With the snow came fierce winds. Ice crystals blasted Randy's face. The sky grew dark as the swirling snow shut out the sun's light.

Look inside to find out more about Randy and other survivors of blizzards who narrowly escaped death. You'll also discover what causes the dangerous winter storms, where and when the world's worst blizzards have occurred, and-most important-how to stay safe if one is heading your way.
