On Thursday, no new avalanche activity was observed. On Wednesday, only a few explosive triggered wind slab avalanches were reported.On Tuesday, a few human triggered wind/storm slabs up to size 1 were observed on sun affected slopes in the alpine.
The new snow likely falls on a melt-freeze crust on all aspects except for north facing slopes above 2000 m, where the snow surface consists of dry snow. Last week's unsettled weather produced 10-35 cm of snow and is bonding well with the underlying layers.Snowfall amounts taper quickly below treeline.
