Avalanche bulletin through Monday, 24 November 2014

A generally favourable avalanche situation will prevail

Edition: 22.11., 17:00 Next update: 24.11., 17:00 Validity

Level 2, moderate

Old snow, snow drifts

Avalanche prone locations
In particular in northwest to north to northeast facing aspects above approximately 2400m.

In particular in northwest to north to northeast facing aspects above approximately 2400m.

Danger description

The near-surface layers of the snowpack can be released in isolated cases and mostly by large additional loads in particular on steep shady slopes. Fresh and somewhat older snow drift accumulations are to be found in particular adjacent to the ridge line and in pass areas. They are mostly small but to be assessed with care and prudence. In high Alpine regions avalanche prone locations are a little more prevalent. Careful route selection is recommended.

Full-depth avalanches, Wet avalanches as day progresses

More full-depth avalanches are possible, including medium-sized ones. This applies in particular on steep east, south and west facing slopes below approximately 2600 m and on steep north facing slopes below approximately 2000 m.
In particular on very steep sunny slopes mostly small natural moist avalanches are to be expected below approximately 3000 m.

Level 2, moderate

Old snow, snow drifts

Avalanche prone locations
In particular in west to north to east facing aspects above approximately 2400m.

In particular in west to north to east facing aspects above approximately 2400m.

Danger description

Avalanches can be released in deeper layers in isolated cases, this applies in particular in case of a large load. Fresh and somewhat older snow drift accumulations are to be found in particular adjacent to the ridge line and in pass areas. They are mostly small but to be assessed with care and prudence. Meticulous route selection is recommended.

Full-depth avalanches, Wet avalanches as day progresses

More full-depth avalanches are possible, but they will be mostly small. This applies in particular on steep east, south and west facing slopes below approximately 2600 m.
In particular on very steep sunny slopes mostly small natural moist avalanches are to be expected below approximately 3000 m.

Information on snowpack and weather

Level 1, low

Favourable situation

Thus far only a little snow is lying. Individual avalanche prone locations are to be found in particular in extremely steep terrain. Restraint should be exercised because avalanches can sweep people along and give rise to falls.
