Weather forecasts and field observations are reliable.
Highly unfavourable conditions. Avoid open terrai.
The snowpack is poorly bonded and largely unstable in genera.
Numerous large-sized and often very large-sized natural avalanches can be expected, even in moderately steep terrain.
Unfavourable conditions.Extensive experience in the assessment of avalanche danger is required. Remain in moderately steep terrain / heed avalanche run out zones
The snowpack is poorly bonded on most steep slopes.
Triggering is likely even from low additional loads on many steep slopes. In some cases, numerous medium-sized and often large-sized natural avalanches can be expected.
Partially unfavourable conditions.Experience in the assessment of avalanche danger is required. Steep slopes of indicated aspects and altitude zones should be avoided if possible
The snowpack is moderately to poorly bonded on many steep slopes.
Triggering is possible, even from low additional loads particularly on the indicated steep slopes. In some cases medium-sized, in isolated cases large-sized natural avalanches are possible.
Mostly favourable conditions. Careful route selection, especially on steep slopes of indicated aspects and altitude zones.
The snowpack is only moderately well bonded on some steep slopes, otherwise well bonded in genera.
Triggering is possible primarily from high additional loads, particularly on the indicated steep slopes. Large-sized natural avalanches are unlikely.
Generally safe conditions.
The snowpack is well bonded and stable in general.
Triggering is generally possible only from high additional loads in isolated areas of very steep, extreme terrain. Only sluffs and small-sized natural avalanches are possible.
High additional load: group of skiers without spacing, snowmobile/groomer, avalanche blasting
Low additional load: single skier, snowboarder, snowshoe hiker
steep slopes: slopes with an angle of more than about 30 degrees
steep extreme terrain: those which are particularly unfavourable as regards slope angle (usually steeper than about 40°)

This information is provided "as is" and the authors cannot be held responsible for possible damages resulting from discomfort, injury, death, claims by third parties and other coincidental causes or consequential damages arising from the use of such information.
The recipient of the information contained therein acknowledges that natural phenomena such as avalanches cannot be accurately predicted and any usage of the data must fully take this into consideration.
The accuracy and reliability of the data is therefore not guaranteed and the providers of this service disclaim all liability of any kind, take no responsibility for the quality of services, the impossibility of its usage, its marketability, nor any possible misuse thereof.
The predicted level of danger of the avalanche is in accordance with the European Avalanche Danger scale (www.avalanche.org). and the icons used to describe the principle avalanche warnings are consistent with those specified by the Utah Avalanche Centre (www.utahavalanchecenter.org).
The terms used for the predictions are also consistent with the specifications of the Centre de Prediccion de Lauegi (www.lauegi.conselharan.org)
