Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Tuesday 07.12.2021

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. Avhengig av hvor mye snø som kommer på ytre strøk på mandag vil det være mer snø tilgjengelig for forflyttning her.

Kantkorn under eldre fokksnøflak eller ned mot bakken har fått utviklet seg i det kalde været.

Søndag ble et lite personutløst skred utløst på kantkornlag over gammel skare i et østvendt heng sør for Lakselv.
