Third degree avalanche alert in Giant Mountains
The Giant Mountains rescue service has called a third degree avalanche alert in the wake of heavy snow over the past few days. A third degree alert, on a five-point scale, is considered a serious risk and skiers have been warned not to stray from the marked trails and avoid taking risks. It is only the third time this winter that a third degree avalanche alert has been called. A second-degree alert remains in place on the Polish side of the mountain.
