Avalanche forecast for Romsdal Tuesday 2019-01-15

3
Considerable
Published:

Be careful in areas with fresh windloaded snow. Avoid lee areas where a persistent weak layer can be hidden in the snow pack. Avalanches are triggered most easily where the snow pack is thin, typically close to ridges and on convex formations.

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new 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.
