Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Generelt svært stabile forhold. Skredfarlige forhold i bratt terreng identifiseres enkelt ved mykheten og fuktigheten i overflaten. Det finnes fortsatt skavler og glidesprekker i terrenget. Noe nedbør i kveld og potensielle byger i morgen, men snødekket drenerer svært godt nå så vil trolig påvirke i liten grad. Forecast correct
