Avalanche forecast for Hardanger Sunday 2019-01-20

Moderate
Published:

Be careful in terrain with fresh storm slabs until the new snow is stabilized.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Be careful in steep slopes and around terrain traps until the new snow has stabilized. The avalanche problem is generally widely distributed on any steep slope with deep new snow. Look for cohesive new snow that breaks apart or is poorly bonded to the old snow. Cracks around your skis are a typical dangersign.

Var ein tur i skitrekket i Røldal etterpå. Ser ein del spor i sør og søraustvendte brattsider, men ingenting teikn på at det har løsna.

Observerte ingen fareteikn. I tillegg til obsturen på Røldalsfjellet (Elvershei) observerte eg langs vegen frå Røldal til Rosendal. Ingen skredaktivitet å spore, men det er mogleg at evt utløyste skred er dekka av nyleg snøfall...

Snow profile (2012)

Sjikt av nysnø innad i fokksnøen som mulige skredproblem. Svakt lag markert som smelteformer er på vei mot kant. Kan kanskje ane noen striper, men ikke tydelige kanter. Ligger dypt i snødekket, og gir ikke tilsvar på repetert ECT.

I dette området ses ingen åpenbare faretegn - hverken på stedet eller i brattere tilgrensende områder. Oppsprekkende flak helt lokalt rundt skia, men ikke skytende sprekker som observert i naboterrenget i går. Antar fokksnøflakene som ble dannet i S-sektor i har relativt liten utbredelse pga begrenset mengde snøtransport. Siden i går har det imidlertid kommet 3-5 cm lett nysnø, og utover dagen har det fortsatt å snø.
