||The avalanche danger level is 2-moderate on the whole Region and the typical avalanche problem there arepersistent weak layer and wind-drifted snow.|
at the passage of many skiers can cause triggering of some hard wind slab, build with the wind of last week (mainly on the the border ridge with France and Switzerland), not always easily visible, on the slopes E and SE, above to 2300-2500 m. These slabs are hard to break, but you must pay attention to the transition between hard and softer snow.
|On the western and northern slopes, above 2200 m, the presence of basal layers and weak internal cohesion (like coarse salt), now also of considerable thickness, can facilitate the triggering of slabs, even of medium size under the ridges, at the entrance the channels, on the elevation changes but also on steep slopes, so please be careful to passage on the steep slopes.
As you travel in the eastern sector of the region, the critical issues and the danger avalanches decreases and becomes the greatest danger to slip or be dragged, in case of a small avalanche in the eroded and rocky areas.
Avalanche danger trend: stationary.
