Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Saturday 28.01.2023

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Locally unstable conditions. Be careful in areas with fresh wind deposited snow. Be aware that there may be pockets with persistent weak layer beneath wind deposited snow.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some 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)

Fredag er det et nytt mildvær på vei inn i regionen med regn til godt over tregrensa. Tidligere denne uka har det vært noen snøbyger med kraftig vind, og dette har ført til ferske fokksnøflak flere steder. Andre steder er det avblåst ned til bakken eller et skarelag.

Det finnes vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn i hele regionen med unntak av lengst ut på kysten. Det har generelt vært vanskelig å påvirke lagene og de anses derfor ikke som et aktivt skredproblem.
