Rockin' Run

 

Snowpack seems pretty stable on the well travelled (skier compacted) off piste runs like this (see video) in much of the N French Alps. There's been some natural and accidental activity away from the well travelled classics above 2200 m on steep slopes around ridges especially near the Italian border areas. Be aware, when touring, of this change in snowpack character from well skied/compacted runs to less skied ones.

Off Piste Snow Report : 29th January - 5th February 2014

The weight of one skier is enough to trigger a slide of surface windslab, while a heavier load (a few skiers) could trigger a deeper and wider slab. CAUTION on steep slopes facing W through N to E, and S facing slopes near ridges along the Italian border
