Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Friday 03.12.2021

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 a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2). Remote triggering is possible.

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten over skoggrensen er mange steder vindpakket og hard. Onsdag var det kraftig vind fra øst og lokalt mye snøtransport inn i lenheng.

Fokksnøflakene ligger stort sett på nedsnødd nysnø som er under oppbyggende omvandling. Det er ingen observasjoner av snødekkestabilitet de siste tre dagene. Men i naboregion, Vest-Finnmark, er det observert drønn, skytende sprekker og fjernutløste skred i skoggrensa.
