Avalanche Danger Assessment

2 Moderate Nysnøen fra helga har dannet stabile flak og snøen er fuktig, i alle fall opp til 1000 MOH. Observerte ikke høyere i dag. Stabilitetstester sammen med ingen skredaktivitet viser god stabilitet. Vinden tørker ut snødekket. Så selv med høy temp blir ikke snødekket vått. Har ikke sett kantkorn. Ved kaldere vær blir skredfaren lavere. Forecast correct

Snow Cover

200 cm in total Some snow drift 0 cm new snow Snow line at 300 masl Wind slab (hard slab) Moist Lett snøfokk i enkelte områder over 1100 MOH.
