Avalanche forecast for Trollheimen Tuesday 2019-03-26


Above the new snow line the danger will increase in lee areas. Wet loose avalanches are the biggest problem below new snow line, the danger increases in the afternoon, when temperature rises.

New snow (slab avalanches)

Buried weak layer of new snow

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.
2 - Medium
Low additional load
Specific steep slopes

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Loose snow

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.
2 - Medium
Spontaneous release
Specific steep slopes

Avalanche Danger Assessment

2 Moderate Kraftig varme på nysnøen igår søndag, heilt til topps. Tok spenning ut av denne og stabiliserte. Kaldere igår ettermiddag, litt utstrålin i går kvel gav smelte/frys- skare. Litt nysnø inatt som ikkje er eit skredproblem her, men som kan være det bak store henteområder og høgare op ved meir vind. Gode bindingar mot smelte/frys- skaren som er seig og fuktig etter varmen. Lite aktuelt med kantkornproblem med varmen som har vært. Solvendte skråninger blir raskt oppvarma og stabilisert no, i skygge er snøen kaldare. Stabiliserande tendens i gml og ny snø. Må nedbør til for å auke tendensen Forecast correct Svak fg 2 og meir mot 1 her i distriktet. Truleg større flak lenger vest. God skildring av forholda


No precipitation -1 °C 8 m/s from W → 80% clouds

Avalanche Problems

Dry slab avalanche Buried weak layer of new snow Within half a meter The overlying slab is soft. Easy to trigger 1 - Small NE, E, SE, S above 900 masl Det er for lite nysnømengde her i området til at det utgjer eit problem, men bak store henteområder og høgare til fjells med meir vind kan flaka komme opp i str 2. Gunstig underlag og gunstig temp

Snow Cover

70 cm in total Some snow drift 5 cm new snow Some loose snow (1-10cm) Dry Litt fuktig i solvendte heng. Sola gjør jobben sjølv om det er skyer
