At 10.00 the temperature is

Please don’t race on other slopes.
Slaloming between beginners is both terrifying and dangerous.

Remember that on this warm day the Santons and the L are likely to close later due to the high risk
of avalanches engulfing one or both of these slopes.

One slab whipped onto the L overnight, but there are more slabs hovering......
Please don’t ski down a closed run

The avalanche risk today is again  2 out of 5.

Never forget, the tricks and traps off piste are not limited to avalanches.
