Watch out for spring avalanches
Anyone thinking of heading up to the mountains over the next few days are being urged to take extra precautions as the warmer weather means there’s a heightened risk of avalanches.
As the snow starts to melt, it becomes very unstable. Forecasters say it’s more dangerous this year than in past years as there was so much snow.
It’s not just skiers that should be worried – but hikers as well. The advice is if you want to head into the mountains – do it in the morning and be back by 10am.
