Fresh snow and snow drifts
Avalanche prone locations
In particular in west to north to east facing aspects above approximately 2200m.
The somewhat older snow drift accumulations represent the main danger. Avalanches can in some places be released by a single winter sport participant. They can in some cases reach medium size.
As a consequence of the foehn wind easily released snow drift accumulations will form. These are to be bypassed. Backcountry touring calls for experience in the assessment of avalanche danger.
Wet avalanches as day progresses
East, south and west facing slopes below approximately 2600 m: As a consequence of warming during the day and solar radiation small and, in isolated cases, medium-sized moist snow slides and avalanches are to be expected.
