Eggstra pow for the Easter.
So we had a couple of extra days of good snow last week and it has been snowing here for two days, although the rain crawled up a bit too high for our taste. The last couple of days have been warm, not unexpectedly, but not ideal for the snow between trübsee hopper and Jochpass. It got a bit warmer by the sun at first, and then the rain started in the village and kept on hammering down with a mixture of snow and heavy drops. It seemed to us like the weather couldn’t really decide for winter or spring. The clouds were heavy with snow but not consistent.
The good thing is that all areas above 2000m kept it’s cool and Steinberg had a full refill covering all tracks from before. today it’s sunny and nice but with a lot of heavy wind. The storm is definitely approaching. (14+13+11+5+6!!!!) Luckily Monday is a red day! 🙂
Snow depth Mountain (slope, 3.020m): 714 cm (!!)
Snow depth Location (1.050m): 20 cm
Snow condition: Powder! Partially Hard.
Latest snowfall: Tuesday
Avalanche alert level: Significant
Fresh and somewhat older snow drift accumulations can be released by a single winter sports participant. As the day progresses the snow drift accumulations will increase in size. Natural avalanches are possible in isolated cases. Avalanches can reach the medium size in isolated cases. Experience in the assessment of avalanche danger is required.
Wet and full-depth avalanches
More wet avalanches are possible.
Below approximately 2400 m full-depth avalanches are possible. These can reach dangerously large size. Areas with glide cracks are to be avoided as far as possible.
Winds were westerly,
- during the night blowing at moderate strength, also reaching strong velocity in the Jura region;
- during the daytime blowing at light to moderate strength.
