On Monday, there were reports of a natural storm slab size 2.5 on an east aspect in the alpine and several natural dry and moist loose avalanches up to size 2.5 on northerly aspects.On Sunday and Saturday, there were a few reports of natural and human triggered storm slab and wind slab avalanches up to size 2 at treeline and alpine elevations. There were also reports of several natural and human triggered loose wet avalanches up to size 1.5 on steep solar slopes and below treeline.On Friday, there were reports of a few natural and human triggered storm and wind slab avalanches up to size 2. These were mainly on north to east aspects in the alpine.
10-35 cm of recent storm snow sits on a melt-freeze crust on all aspects except for north slopes above 2000 m, where it sits on dry snow and surface hoar (feathery crystals) in some areas. Recent snowfall amounts taper quickly below treeline.North facing slopes above 2000 m may also have a layer of sugary faceted snow buried 50 to 70 cm.Snow is disappearing rapidly at lower elevations.
