Old wind slabs require caution. Moist snow slides and avalanches as the day progresses.
The large surface-area wind slabs of the weekend are lying on top of a weakly bonded old snowpack in all aspects above approximately 2100 m. Wind-protected shady slopes: These can as before be released, even by a single winter sport participant. Extremely steep sunny slopes: Wind slabs can especially at their margins occasionally be released by people. In many cases the avalanches in these loacations are medium-sized. As a consequence of warming during the day and solar radiation gliding avalanches and moist snow slides are possible from midday, but they will be mostly small.
The current avalanche situation calls for experience in the assessment of avalanche danger and careful route selection. The wind slabs are to be bypassed whenever possible.
The large surface-area wind slabs of the weekend are lying on weak layers in all aspects above approximately 2100 m. Field observations and stability tests show a precarious avalanche situation.
At intermediate and high altitudes snow depths vary greatly, depending on the infuence of the wind. At low altitude from a snow sport perspective, in most cases insufficient snow is lying.
The danger of dry and moist avalanches will decrease gradually.
