The northwesterly wind will transport the fresh snow. This applies at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. In some places fresh snow and wind slabs are lying on soft layers. This applies in particular on shady slopes at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. The snowpack will be subject to considerable local variations. The old snowpack will be in most cases stable.
As a consequence of a sometimes strong wind from northwesterly directions, wind slabs will form. These can be released by a single winter sport participant in isolated cases at high altitudes and in high Alpine regions. The avalanche prone locations are to be found in particular on very steep shady slopes above approximately 2200 m and adjacent to ridgelines. In some cases the avalanches are medium-sized. At high altitudes and in high Alpine regions the avalanche prone locations are more prevalent and larger. Such avalanche prone locations are clearly recognisable to the trained eye.
In addition as the day progresses some mostly small loose snow avalanches are possible. On sunny slopes the avalanche prone locations are more prevalent.
