Low avalanche danger will prevail

Edition: 9.12., 17:00 Next update: 10.12., 17:00 Validity

Level 1, low

Old snow

Avalanches can in isolated cases be released in near-ground layers. This applies in particular on extreme shady slopes above approximately 2600 m. Caution is to be exercised in particular at transitions from a shallow to a deep snowpack, when entering gullies and bowls for example.
In some localities small snow drift accumulations have formed. These are to be avoided especially in terrain where there is a danger of falling.
The Avalanche Warning Service currently has only a small amount of information that has been collected in the field, so that the avalanche danger should be investigated especially thoroughly in the relevant locality.

Full-depth avalanches

Especially on very steep south facing slopes individual full-depth avalanches are possible.

Level 1, low

Old snow

In isolated cases avalanches can be released in near-ground layers. This applies especially on extreme shady slopes above approximately 2800 m. Apart from the danger of being buried, restraint should be exercised in particular in view of the danger of avalanches sweeping people along and giving rise to falls.
