It was another fine spring day, clear and sunny. Winds were light to moderate over the highest summits from a South-South-West direction otherwise it was generally calm and still. Â The freezing level was above the summits. The snowpack is generally well consolidated and stable. Through the day the surface layers softened but stability remained good in most places. Some minor localised surface instabilities developed during the afternoon on steeper slopes exposed to the sunshine, mainly on North through East to South-East aspects above 850 metres. The avalanche hazard is Low.
