Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Monday 15.03.2021

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Be careful in lee areas with fresh wind deposited snow. There is also weak snow deep in the snowpack at high elevations. It is unlikely for a skier to trigger these layers, but if it happens avalanches will be large and very dangerous.

Avalanche problems

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

You can trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

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)

Det er kommet litt nysnø de siste dagene. Der vinden ikke kommer til, for eksempel i skogen, så er snøen ubunden eller lett vindpåvirket. I høyden og på mer utsatte steder er snøen vindpåvirket, eller det er avblåst til eldre skarelag.

Det finnes flere vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn i forbindelse med skarelag, og begerkrystaller langs bakken. Under ca. 200 moh. er det gamle snødekket gjennomfuktet etter mildværet i slutten av februar.
