Avalanche Problems

Loose wet avalanche Loose snow Spontaneous release 1 - Small N, NE, E, SE above 1300 masl Gjelder lengst vest i regionen. Unngå heng under skavler, der kan Skredene bli større.

Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Ikke vært på tur, kun kjøring vestfra. Nedsmelting fortsetter. Med mer varme vil jeg tro naturlig utløste skred øker, men i hovedsak str 1

Snow Cover

No snowdrift Snødekket krymper for hver dag. Ingen nye skred av nevneverdig str. Jeg så imidlertid et str. 1 naturlig utløst vått løssnøskred i bratt østvendt terreng i nærheten av bart fjell løsne av seg selv.
