Avalanche alert in Jeseníky and Krkonoše mountains


A third degree avalanche alert has been called in the Jeseníky and Krkonoše mountains following several days of heavy snow. It is the highest avalanche warning this season.

The mountain rescue service says the situation is extremely dangerous since a combination of factors have created a highly unstable layer of snow on many slopes. Skiers have been warned not to take risks or stray from marked trails.
