Snow cover is lower than the average for the period and is often scarce in the mid-mountain and southern slopes. Snow cover is irregular, best in the north-west of the region. For ski touring, in the south the snow is sufficiently continuous above 2400-2500 m, in the north above 1800-1900 m. Bumps and ridges are often eroded and the leeward gullies are loaded with snow.
The old snowpack is stable also thanks to the sharp drop in temperatures. At high altitudes, soft slabs of wind-blown snow have formed over the recent fresh snow, which acts as a weak layer. Especially on the north and north-east aspects there are inside the old mantle weak layers that are not currently giving stability problems.
Avalanches observed last 24h
Some sluffs of fresh snow from very steep rocky slopes have been reported. Triggering of a soft surface slab (20-30 cm thick) exposure N at 2700 m.
Alternation of loose snow and windy snow, especially on the northern slopes and at high altitudes. At lower altitudes, hard old snow. Still useful knives or crampons.
