Avalanche forecast for Indre Troms Friday 2019-05-31

Highest danger level per day:

Small, wet avalanches may release in steep terrain in lower areas. Wind slabs are a problem at high elevations. Avoid areas beneath visible gliding cracks, glide avalanches may occur.

Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd Be careful and keep distance to each other in steep (above 30 degrees) terrain 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.
