Snowpack Summary

In the Alpine, there is a bit more snow on the eastern slopes. The other aspects are mostly free of snow, apart from couloirs and other depressions.

At and below treeline, in areas protected from the wind, 5 to 15 cm of low-density snow cover a layer of dense snow. The latter rests on 2 to 10 cm of facets that have developed on top of the New Year's Day crust.

The height of snow varies from 5 to 180 cm, depending on aspect and elevation.
