Advice

The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Der vinden ikke kommer til, for eksempel i skogen, så er snøen ubunden eller lett vindpåvirket. I høyden og på mer utsatte steder, så er snøen vindpåvirket, eller avblåst til eldre skarelag.

Det finnes flere vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn i forbindelse med skarelag eller langsmed bakken. Under ca. 200 moh. er snødekket gjennomfuktet etter mildværet i slutten av februar.

Torsdag kl. 10 er det observert kraftig snøfokk nær Lakselv.
