Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Wednesday 08.12.2021

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. Generally little snow and a lot of rocks, be careful in and around terrain traps.

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

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)

Snøoverflaten over skoggrensen er stort sett avblåst eller vindpakket. Det kom noe snø rundt Honningsvåg på mandag så noe snø kan være 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.
