Avalanche problems in the area

Snow layers and snow cover

Some new snow was added in the beginning of the week in showers of snow and SW wind, not alot of snow accumulated but there is still a slight chance of wind slabs to have formed in the highest mountains and in confined gullies, mostly in northerly aspects. Generally, there is rather little snow in the forecasting area and the older snow has become rather stable. Due to rain in the next few days, wet avalanches could possibly fall.
