Avalanche problems in the area

Snow layers and snow cover

Snow is considered rather stable after melt-freeze cycles. Old weak layers, which the thaw has not broken down, may though still exist in certain places. It is unlikely to trigger avalanches on this layer, but if it happens, the avalanches can be large. Some new snow on Saturday and Sunday that may be unstable in the beginning.

Recent avalanches

Many avalanches released in the area in warm weather and rain last weekend.
