Avalanche Bulletin - 30.04.2023

Moderate danger of wet avalanches will be encountered over a wide area. This is the final hazard map for the winter 2022/23. Regular avalanche bulletins with hazard maps will appear again from around the start of December, depending on the snow situ

The spring-like weather conditions gave rise to thorough wetting of the snowpack over a wide area, especially below approximately 2600 m. Outgoing longwave radiation during the night will be severely restricted. Down to high altitudes snow will fall. The snowpack remains weakly bonded.

Isolated avalanche prone weak layers exist in the old snowpack in particular on steep shady slopes.
Wet avalanches can in some places be released easily and reach medium size. The avalanche prone locations are to be found on steep slopes of all aspects. Avalanches can in isolated cases release deeper layers of the snowpack, especially on steep north facing slopes at high altitude.


Tuesday: As a consequence of falling temperatures, the activity of wet avalanches will decrease. Down to high altitudes snow will fall. As a consequence of new snow and a moderate to strong northerly wind, small wind slabs will form in high Alpine regions.

Before you leave the pistes, it is absolutely mandatory to thoroughly study the information PDF containing the report on the current avalanche warnings. The avalanche warning provides extensive information on the current snow situation, current avalanche risk and detailed information on other danger zones that free riders and ski tourers must know about.
