Avalanche forecast for Nord-Troms Thursday 2019-03-14

3
Considerable
Published:

Updated Wednesday at 9 am. Be careful in areas with wind slabs. Layers of faceted crystals have started to form in the snow cover, but have not been a problem yet. This may quickly change in the cold weather, so be extra cautious, especially around the treeline, and where the snow cover is thin and soft.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

Avoid terrain traps and steep slopes 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.
2 - Medium
Spontaneous release
Specific steep slopes
Possible
