Sun and a high freezing level will make wet avalanches the main concern on steep slopes facing the sun.




Snowpack Summary

Expect surfaces to melt and weaken as the freezing level climbs to 2900 m on Sunday. This will occur rapidly on sun-exposed slopes.

Weak layers deeper in the snowpack have shown signs of strengthening and are no longer a concern.
