Avalanche Danger

Tips for backcountry skiing tours in May and June:

Heed the daytime changes (altitude, aspect, day of arrival and departure, overcast or clear nocturnal skies)
Avoid hot days (better to go biking or swimming)
Following heavy snowfall, wait a day (until the first settling of the snowpack)

Short Term Development

The team at the Avalanche Warning Service extends a debt of thanks to all observers and manned stations, to the Alpine Police, the military pilots and weather watchers of the ZAMG for their ardent help during the season, as well as the ongoing information from 70 Avalanche Commissions. Also a vote of thanks to Jeffrey McCabe for his vivid daily English versions.
