Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Sunday 22.05.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

The snow is generally stable, but avalanches can occur in areas where the sun makes the snow surface wet and soft. Keep a good distance from cornices.

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)

Snøgrensa kryp oppover og høgast er den lengst ut mot havet og i fjellsidene som har fått mest sol. Snøen som finst er generelt smelteomvandla, og den kan fryse om natta der det er klarvêr, men tiner i sola og der det er mildt og skya.
