Published:
Very dangerous avalanche conditions. Travel in avalanche terrain not recommended. We expect wet slab activity around and below treeline. Wind slabs can be easily triggered in the alpine.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a large truck or destroy several houses (size 4).

Wet snow (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).
