Description:
There is a forecast DANGER LEVEL of MODERATE above 2000m. This applies particularly to higher elevation steep slopes where there is an existing snowpack. Below 2000m the danger is LOW. Generally there is not much snow below this elevation. Where snow does exist , small wet snow avalanches are possible in steep terrain e.g. gullies. Precipitation and low visibility over the next few days will make it difficult to assess terrain properly
