Fresh snow and snow drifts, old snow
Avalanche prone locations
In all aspects above approximately 2000m.
The fresh snow and snow drift accumulations of the last few days represent the main danger. Even single persons can release avalanches easily, including dangerously large ones. Small and medium-sized natural avalanches are possible.
Northern Alpine ridge from the Jungfrau to the Tödi as well as Lower Engadine: Individual large natural avalanches are possible. Exposed parts of transportation routes can be endangered in particular here.
The inneralpine regions of both Valais and Grisons, Lower Engadine and Val Müstair: In some places avalanches can penetrate deep layers.
The conditions are dangerous for snow sport activities outside marked and open pistes.
Individual wet avalanches are possible, in particular below approximately 2200 m.
