Snow drifts, old snow
Avalanche prone locations
In particular in west to north to east facing aspects above approximately 1800m.
The mostly small snow drift accumulations of the weekend can still be released in some cases. They are easy to recognise.
Avalanches can in some places be released in the weakly bonded old snow, especially on north facing slopes above approximately 2000 m. They can reach dangerously large size. These avalanche prone locations are rather rare but barely recognisable. Caution is to be exercised in areas where the snow cover is rather shallow as well as at transitions from a shallow to a deep snowpack.
Careful route selection and spacing between individuals are recommended.
