Danger level
Danger Level 1 - Low
Avalanche Problem
Wind-drifted snow above 2200m, N-NE-E-SE-NW

The backcountry touring conditions are generally favourable. Fresh wind slabs require caution.

The avalanche prone locations are to be found in particular on very steep northwest, north and southeast facing slopes above approximately 2200 m, especially in gullies and bowls, and behind abrupt changes in the terrain. These places are clearly recognisable to the trained eye. Mostly the avalanches are small.
In steep terrain there is a danger of falling on the hard snow surface.


dp 6: cold, loose snow and wind

Some snow will fall in some localities. The fresh and somewhat older wind slabs are mostly small and can only be released in isolated cases. In some cases relatively hard layers of snow are lying on old snow containing large grains. This applies especially on shady slopes at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. The snowpack will be subject to considerable local variations.


The backcountry touring conditions are generally favourable.
