Snow condition in Val Grande
( Vogogna, 26 March 2014 )
UPDATE OF APRIL 16TH, 2014
The impossibility to reach the Val Grande from Ossola, Vigezzo and Cannobina persists due to the snow level and the snowslides. The slopes in the shade of the southern area are covered with snow too. We advise you against carrying out the crossing Malesco-Scaredi-In La Piana-Premosello and against crossing all the mountain passes.
The Park Authority informs that all the access areas to reach Val Grande from Ossola, Vigezzo and Cannobina are impassable due to the high snow level. The snow came back between yesterday and today at an altitude of 800 m even in the Park's southern sector.
During the next days, due to the temperature rise, the risk of avalanches increased from moderate to marked. To be informed about the up-to-date situation we suggest you to read the avalanche bulletin issued by Arpa Piemonte and available on http://www.regione.piemonte.it/xmeteo/xmeteod/
