Avalanche forecast for Nord-Troms Thursday 2019-02-07

2
Moderate
Published:

Locally unstable avalanche conditions. Be cautious in steep terrain, storm slabs can be triggered.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Be careful in steep slopes and around terrain traps 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.
