On Saturday the aid corps reported 70 injuries. This brings the number of casualties, searches and retrieval missions in total this Easter up to 622, compared to 609 for Easter Eve in 2015.
Hikers are requested by Red Cross to keep track of changes in the weather and  in which areas there are dangers of avalanches on Sunday .
