Fresh snow at 2000 m (data at 15:00)
20-30 cm in the Valleys of Gressoney, Ayas, Champorcher; 20 cm in the Gran Paradiso Valleys. 5-10 cm on the border with France and Switzerland, about 5 cm in the central valley.
Few snow or no snow up to 2000 m, good going up.
The refreezing is absent even up to 2500 m and scarce above this altitude. The moderate/strong south-east winds rework the new snow forming mainly accumulations on the northern slopes. In the northern slopes there is a potentially dangerous structure: a cohesive surface layer over a weak layer formed by faceted crystals or goblets, buried about 30 cm from the surface, which could be triggered by the weight of the new snow and the snow accumulated by the wind.
Avalanche activity reported in the last 24H: no avalanche reported.
In general not so good. In the areas affected by snowfall, wet and very wet snow is found up to 2500 m, dry above. Elsewhere spring snow in the steep south slopes, even up to 3200 m. Powdery fresh snow in some slopes in full north above 2800 m. Crusts, more or less thick, on the other slopes, hard on the west slopes up to 2800 m.
