Avalanche prone locations
In particular in southwest to north to east facing aspects above approximately 2400m.
The fresh snow and snow drift accumulations of last week are lying on top of a weakly bonded old snowpack, especially on north facing slopes above approximately 2200 m. Whumpfing sounds and the formation of shooting cracks when stepping on the snowpack can indicate the danger. Even single winter sport participants can release avalanches. Mostly these are small. Snow sport activities outside marked and open pistes call for experience in the assessment of avalanche danger.
As a consequence of the northeasterly wind avalanche prone snow drift accumulations have formed, in particular adjacent to the ridge line. They are to be evaluated with care and prudence.
