Avalanche forecast for Nord-Troms Thursday 2019-03-07

3
Considerable
Published:

Difficult conditions. Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies.

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Poor bonding between layers in wind deposited snow

Avoid steep (more than 30 degrees) areas 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.
3 - Large
Low additional load
Specific steep slopes
Possible
