Published:

Be careful on steep slopes with soft and wet snow and with fresh slabs at altitude, a skier can trigger avalanches here, or they can release when the temperature increases. Persistent weak layers buried in the old snowpack can cause large naturally released avalanches.

Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd Wet surface: Avoid staying for a longer period in terrain steeper than 30 degrees. Avoid also runout zones.
Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd Dry surface: Move gradually away from the fall line when skiing on large slopes to avoid to be caught by small sluffs you or someone else in your group release while skiing.
Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd Avoid terrain traps.
