Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Friday 28.05.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

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)


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 vært stor snøsmelting den siste tiden, noe som har gjort at snøgrensa har blitt høyere, og det er lite snø lengst ut på kysten og i sørvendte hellinger. Den snøen som finnest er i hovedsak blitt smelteomvandlet, og veksler mellom våt grovkornet snø og skare. Det kan muligens være andre forhold på indre strøk, f.eks ved Gaissane.
