Published:

Avoid lee areas in higher terrain with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Naturally triggered avalanches may occur.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Avoid terrain traps and steep slopes 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.

Visit www.ut.no for topographic maps online. For slope angle maps, see NGI slope angel maps ("helning" means slope angle).

Modelled snowpack and historic and current weather information can be found on the webpage senorge.no. This site uses information from the weather stations and interpolate values from the stations for gridded maps.
