“Watch for strong solar input if the sun comes out. Start early, finish early. Expect challenging skiing below treeline. Watch for wind slabs on northerly aspects.”

The avalanche danger is variable and can range from Low to High. Travelling early in the day is recommended, as conditions can change rapidly in short periods of time due to daytime warming.
