Ski testing yesterday morning produced very easily released size 1 moist snow avalanches.

Steep terrain and sun affected slopes released very easily.

At 2240 meters the temperature was -2.5, winds were calm. At 1550 meters the temperature was +2, no new snow with a base of 119 cm. In the valley it was +7. Observations taken at 08:00 this AM.

For the forecast the slow moving cold upper-level low will continue to give us unsettled weather . For this morning we can expect mostly sunny conditions, clouds building in the afternoon. Saturday looks cloudy with  light rain continuing into Sunday. Monday and Tuesday will be a mix of sun and cloud. Freezing levels will fluctuate from 1750-2200 meters for today into Saturday, with a dusting of snow overnight into Saturday morning for the alpine. Sunday will see the freezing level rise to 2400 meters and steadily increase to 2600 meters by Monday. Guesstimates Today trace-2mm, Saturday 2-4 mm, Sunday 2-4 mm, Monday trace -2 mm.
