Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Thursday 02.12.2021

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Locally unstable conditions. Be aware that there can be pockets with persistent weak layers and unstable wind slabs.

Avalanche problems

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2). Remote triggering is possible.

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 falt 20-30 cm snø forrige helg over 20 cm skare. Snøen er vindpakket og hard i nordlige leformasjoner og det er dannet ferske fokksnøflak.

Over topper er det blåst ned til skare.

Under skoggrense og i sørvendte bakker er snøen ubundet og består av kantkorn og rim i 20-30 cm ned til skare.

Fokksnøflakene ligger på nedsnødd nysnø som er under oppbyggende omvandling.
