At the moment, we have 30-40 cm of fresh snow above 2000 m along the border with France and Swiss, 20-30 cm in the valleys of Gran Paradiso and in the central valley, 25-30 cm in lower valley. The snow level is now set on 1800-2000 m. Moderate S winds are drifting the fresh snow above 2500 m building thick slabs above 3000 m. The snow fall is likely to disappear quickly on sunny slopes and at medium altitude: the snow cover will remain only on N slopes and at high altitudes. The return to a more 'mild climate will favor the natural avalanche activity at all aspects, especially at the very steep and sunny slopes above 2200 2500 m.
