Snow Cover

40 cm in total No snowdrift 1 cm new snow Elevation of new snow 800 masl. Snow line at 400 masl. Layered snow begins at 1000 masl Crust Dry Panserskare fra 400-1600moh i dag. Kan nå bekrefte at mildværet har gått til topps i regionen hvis noen var i tvil. Enkelte, små(!) fokksnøflak etter ørlite grann nedbør i går kveld. Minimal tining observert gjennom dagen, men har heller ikke gått i sørlig sektor noe særlig. Det beste skiføret er i små lommer av fersk innblåst fra nordvest samt soltint skare i lavereliggende sørvendt.

Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Generelt svært stabile forhold. Panserføre fra bunn til topps. Enkelte små fokksnøflak i høyden. Fortsatt kjølige temperaturer vil opprettholde den «gunstige» situasjonen. Nedbør i helga vil sprite ting opp litt. Forecast correct

Weather

No precipitation -8 °C 6 m/s from NW ↘ 10% clouds Det kom ørlite nedbør i går kveld later det til.
