Danger levelSimbolStability of the snow layerProbability of avalanche triggering
5 - Very high riskThe instability of the snow layer is generalized.Even on the very slightly steep slopes numerous avalanches of large, often even very large dimensions can spontaneously be produced.
4 - High riskThe snow layer is very little stabilized on most slopes*.Avalanche triggering is likely even by a slight overload** on many slopes that are sufficiently inclined. In some situations, many spontaneous avalanches of medium and often large dimmensions are possible.
3 - Considerable riskOn numerous inclined slopes*, the snow layer is medium or little stabilized.Avalanche triggering is possible even with a light overload**, especially on the slopes described in the bulletin. In some situations spontaneous avalanches of medium and sometimes large dimmensions are possible.
2 - Moderate riskOn some slopes sufficiently inclined*, the snow layer is medium stabilized; the rest is stable.Avalanche triggering is possible especially at heavy overloads** and on some steep slopes described in the bulletin. Spontaneous avalanches of large dimmensions are not expected.
1 - Low riskThe snow layer is generally stabilized on most slopes.Avalanche triggering is possible only isolated on very steep slopes and in case of a heavy overloads**. Spontaneously only small snow flows or small avalanches may occur.

* Areas exposed to avalanche risk are described in the bulletin (altitude, slope orientation, land type):
• moderate steep slopes: with an angle under 30°
• inclined steep slopes: with an angle over 30°
• very inclined and dangerous slopes: generally with an angle over 40°, depending on the terrain configuration, the roughness of the soil; areas near mountain ridges.

** Overload:
• light: isolated skier / snowboarder descending smoothly without falling; tourist - without skis, on foot; a group that keeps the minimum distance of 10 m between the tourists
• heavy: two or more skiers / snowboarders who do not keep the safety distance between them; Snow groomers, snowmobiles; explosives

Last routes climbed in Romania

Valea Albă 1A

The White Valley is one of the most popular unmarked valleys in Bucegi Moutains. One of the widest in the mountain range and without many obstacles to climb.
