Avalanche forecast for Sunnmøre Tuesday 2019-05-14

Highest danger level per day:
2
Moderate
Published:

When the sun comes out, the danger will rise in areas where the new snow becomes wet and soft. Be aware in steep lee areas at higher elevations, small and dry storm slabs may possibly be released. Be careful close to and in terrain traps.

Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd Be careful in avalanche release and runout areas. Avoid skiing in terrain traps. Timing is important. Stability decreases when the snow surface gets wet and soft. Wet snow avalanches tend to release spontaneously.
Illustrasjon av ferdselsråd 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.
