Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

A significant amount of snow has melted into crust on Monday throughout the country, and thawing has reached up to the mountain tops in many areas. Wind slabs could form in north-facing slopes during the Tuesday night snowfall and on Tuesday morning in North and East parts. Weaknesses in the upper snowpack have likely disappeared due to the thaw, but deeper weaknesses higher in the mountains could still be present in the North part of the country.
