Weather

No precipitation -1 °C 8 m/s from SE ↖ 40% clouds Pent vær, sola varmer mye og snøen lengre ned er slush. Mye vind i høyden.

Snow Cover

150 cm in total Some snow drift 1 cm new snow Elevation of new snow 50 masl. Snow line at 50 masl Storm slab (soft slab) Dry Varierer veldig ut fra hvor høyt du er. Snødekket begynner å bli jevnt og stabilt hvor jeg grov (500moh)

Danger Sign

Recent snowdrift Område: Generelt på fjellet. Beskrivelse: Skrint på toppene, vinden har i hovedsak blåst fra sør-øst og det har kanskje samlet seg en del snø i nord-vest vendte heng. Varier om det er myk vindtransportert snø eller avblåst og hardt i østvendte sider.

Avalanche Danger Assessment

Stabil snø akkurat hvor jeg grov, men det er svært varierende dekke og sola kan påvirke bindingene i snøen når den varmer utover dagen.
