Avalanche forecast for Romsdal Thursday 2019-01-10

3
Considerable
Published:

Wind deposited snow is the problem above the new snow line, lower down some naturally released wet avalanches can occur due to rain and rise in temperature.

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Loose snow

Avoid avalanche release and run out areas. Wet snow avalanches tend to release spontaneously. Timing is important. Stability decreases when the snow surface gets wet and soft.
2 - Medium
Spontaneous release
Many steep slopes
Possible

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Poor bonding between layers in wind deposited snow

Avoid steep (more than 30 degrees) areas with fresh wind deposited snow, especially convex terrain. An avalanche is easier to trigger where wind slabs are thin or soft. Look for areas where the wind recently has deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Remember that local wind effects will cause variation in where the wind slabs occur.
3 - Large
Low additional load
Isolated steep slopes
Likely
