Der det ligger sammenhengende snø består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av vindpåvirket snø av varierende hardhet. Det gamle og stedvis beskjedne snødekket antas stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing, unntatt i de høyestliggende områdene. Det er generelt lite snø under ca 1000 moh i ytre strøk. I indre strøk er det mer snø, men lokale variasjoner.

Et lite skiløper utløst skred i Myrkdalen mandag.

Observatør melder om 3 cm nysnø i Jordalen tirsdag, og et tynt skarelag under nysnøen etter underkjølt regn.
