Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Monday 06.12.2021

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.

Wind drifted snow (slab 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

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten over skoggrensen er stort sett avblåst eller vindpakket. Sannsynligvis mer snø på indre strøk av regionen, men lite observasjoner herfra.

Fokksnøflakene ligger stort sett på nedsnødd nysnø som er under oppbyggende omvandling. Det er ikke observasjoner av faretegn de siste dagene. Men i naboregionen, Vest-Finnmark, er det observert drønn, skytende sprekker og fjernutløste skred i skoggrensa forrige uke.

Det er generelt lite snø, særlig ute ved kysten.
