Thanks to the snowfall in the Piedmont and the regions at the border of Switzerland and France the avalanche danger rose to HIGH (that's 4 on a scale of 5). The combination of fresh snow, wind, surface hoar and some old and weak layers in the snowpack sets creates an interesting situation in the resorts where it will be snowing the next 60 hours.
In addition, there is still no snow at all below 1800-2000 meter in lots of resorts. At least not before this dump. It will be hard to find some tree runs to ride (or simply put: it will be close to impossible). Please note that there is no base below 1900 meters and rocks and branches are still close to the surface.
If you want to ride some powder the next couple of days, ask yourself the following questions:
