Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Thursday 09.12.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally safe avalanche 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 trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten over skoggrensen er stort sett avblåst eller vindpakket. Under tregrensen kan det noen steder ligge ubunden snø over et skarelag.

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

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