TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Munich (dpa) - The avalanche danger in the Berchtesgaden Alps has fallen, according to experts, but it remains considerable. Meanwhile, the Bavarian avalanche service classified the danger in all areas of the Bavarian Alps at warning level 3, which is the third highest of five danger levels. The main danger is therefore from large or very large loose snow and slab avalanches, which could solve themselves because of the weight of fresh snow on the old snow. Avalanches could go down to valleys. The alert service strongly recommends that you be extra careful.
