Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Wednesday 26.05.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:
It is in general a stable snowpack. Some wet avalanches can occur in sun-exposed slopes and due to higher temperatures, so be careful if the snow is very wet, especially in terrain traps.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

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 har vore stor snøsmelting siste tida, noko som har gjort at snøgrensa har blitt høgare, og det er lite snø lengst ut på kysten. Den snøen som finnast er i hovudsak blitt smelteomvandla, inkludert dei vedvarande svake laga som fantest tidlegare på sesongen. Snøoverflata vekslar mellom våt grovkorna snø og skare. Det kan moglegens vere andre tilhøve med Gaissene.
