Danger Level 1 - Low above 2200m
Avalanche Problem
Wind-drifted snow above 2200m, E-SE-S-SW-W

High altitudes and the high Alpine regions: Fresh wind slabs represent the main danger.

The Avalanche Warning Service currently has only a small amount of information that has been collected in the field. As a consequence of fresh snow and a sometimes moderate northeasterly wind, rather small wind slabs will form in places that are protected from the wind. This applies in particular at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. Mostly the avalanches are rather small but in some cases easily released.
Low and intermediate altitudes: Areas with glide cracks are to be avoided.


dp 6: cold, loose snow and wind

5 to 10 cm of snow, and even more in some localities, will fall above approximately 2000 m. The wind will be moderate to strong for a temporary period. The fresh wind slabs are lying on a crust on east to south to west facing aspects at intermediate and high altitudes. In very isolated cases weak layers exist in the old snowpack.
Outgoing longwave radiation during the night will be severely restricted. At intermediate altitudes the snow is wet. At low altitude no snow is lying.


Hardly any decrease in avalanche danger.
