** The chaos that ensues as the emergency vehicles respond to the avalanche; especially the aforementioned out-of-control police car that crashes into the man and the store. After the horrific avalanche sequence, the cars and their drivers somehow failing to leave town without causing even ''more'' chaos is just downright comical.

** He's broken enough at least to solemnly admit that he was to blame for all of it, which Caroline admits is something he's never done before.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Caroline and David are implied to get back together at the end, despite the fact David's behaviour is borderline obsessive towards her. Ditto with Nick, who Carolina has even less chemistry with, but is implied to have had intercourse with.
* TooCoolToLive: Cool might be stretching it, but minor character and Jason's ski-lift mate Martin ensures that Jason is gets down from the ski-lift safe and sound....only for his own attempt at getting down to be botched by an electric shock and result in him falling to his death.

* DesignatedHero: David. His own stubbornness is why the eponymous avalanche is so devastating, and he doesn't seem to have any visible concern about anyone except Caroline (and maybe his mother). He accepts responsibility for the mess in the end, but he doesn't seem very torn up over it. Let's not forget how disturbingly possessive he is of Carolina.

** The death of Florence can be seen as the writers trying a bit to hard to tug at your heartstrings. Did she die thanks to the avalanche or the dining room gas leak? No, she died when the person driving the ambulance she's in careens off a cliff. Then, as if to drive the point home, it blows up. [[SarcasmMode Subtle.]]
