Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

Because of thaw and warm temperatures this week the snow cover has become mostly stable, still with unstable wind slabs present in confined gullies. New snow is expected in mountains in most parts of the country in the next few days. Where wind is stiffer, drifting snow will form wind slabs that can be unstable.
