Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

A significant amount of snow melted into crust on Monday throughout the country, and thawing reached up to the mountain tops in many areas. Wind slabs could form in south-facing slopes in the Tuesday snowfall in North and East parts. The old snowpack is likely becoming stronger after thaw and freeze cycles. 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.
