Today we celebrate László Karácsonyi, who reached the beautiful age of 89 years. Happy birthday!. On 21.01.1912 Leova Stolear was born.

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
