Fresh snow and snowpack
Along the ridge of the foreign border 10-20 cm of fresh snow have fallen above 2000 m. The strong winds have created new small accumulations on the southern slopes below the ridges and hills, which add to the recent ones on the north and east slopes. The recent loose snow rests on a hard ground of old snow. On the northern slopes, between 2000 and 2500 m, there are still weak inner layers in the snow cover.
Spontaneous avalanche activity
Some small avalanches and slabs triggered by skis with very steep slopes and rocky bars.
The snow is below the seasonal average throughout the region: in the west it is better than the rest of the territory, especially in the border areas. Above 2500 m the snow is more uneven. At high altitudes, glaciers sometimes have outcropping ice.
The skis are fitted: to the north from 1600-1800 m, to the south from 2000-2200 m.Where it snowed, at high altitude, there is powdery snow in the North-West; otherwise it lasts because it is compacted by the wind at high altitude, or due to a rain crust below. Spring snow below 2800-3000 m on many southern slopes. Several eroded areas with old hard snow (useful knives).
