Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Friday 20.05.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable avalanche conditions. But with milder temperatures, use caution in areas where the sun makes the snow surface wet and soft.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow 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)

Mildvær forrige uke gjorde snøoverflate våt og fuktig oppover i fjellet. Men tidligere i uken kom det noe nysnø i fjellet og snøoverflaten er en blanding av gammel igjenfrosset snø, ubunden nysnø og små fokksnøflak.

Små str.1 skred observert i sydøstlig eksposisjoner ved Honningsvåg mandag.

Snødekket er generelt tynnere og fuktigere i sydlige himmelretninger, mens snødekket er tykkere og kaldere i nordlige himmelretninger.
