Danger level
Danger Level 1 - Low
Avalanche Problem
Wind-drifted snow above 2500m, N-NE-NW

The backcountry and freeriding conditions are favourable. Fresh wind slabs in the high Alpine regions. Slight increase in danger as a consequence of warming during the day and solar radiation.

The snow sport conditions outside marked and open pistes are favourable. The fresh wind slabs represent the main danger. They can still in isolated cases be released by small loads, but they will be small in most cases. Restraint should be exercised because avalanches can sweep people along and give rise to falls. Individual avalanche prone locations are to be found in particular on very steep northeast, north and northwest facing slopes above approximately 2500 m, especially adjacent to ridgelines and in pass areas. They are clearly recognisable to the trained eye.
As a consequence of warming during the day and solar radiation individual moist loose snow avalanches are possible. This applies on extremely steep sunny slopes.


dp 6: cold, loose snow and wind

Fresh wind slabs are lying on soft layers on northwest to north to northeast facing aspects above approximately 2500 m. They are in individual cases still prone to triggering. The surface of the snowpack has frozen to form a strong crust and will soften during the day. This applies on sunny slopes as well as in all aspects at low and intermediate altitudes. The old snowpack will be stable over a wide area.


The avalanche conditions are favourable.
