||The avalanche danger is 2-moderate on most of the region, 1-low in the central and eastern valley floor. The greatest danger is given by persistent weak layers and, minimally, by the wind-drifted snow.|
Triggering avalanche release:
1 - persistent weak layers: more skiers may surcharge the inner weak layers and triggering slabs, even thick (low probability of release, but, in case, with considerable consequences). The danger points are few, but hardly recognizable even by the expert. The suspects slopes, to be carefully evaluated, are the steep slopes, wide and homogeneous, colder aspects (NW, N and E) between 2400 and 2900 m, little skied earlier during winter.
2 - wind-drifted snow: above 2600-2900 m there are soft or hard wind loads, small sized (up to 20-30 cm of thickness), built up by the moderate/strong winds from NW, more susceptible to overload in the central hours. They are mainly found at the E, SE, S aspects and are easy to see and avoid. |
Natural avalanche release: possible some snow avalanches and slabs, even full-depth, on the steep slopes below 2700-2900 m, mainly at the sunniest aspects, during the hottest hours, near rocky bars or on very steep grassy slopes..
Avalanche danger trend: steady.
