Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Saturday 01.04.2023

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Snow and wind will create slabs on top of a weak snowpack. Avalanches will be very easy to trigger. In the areas that receive the most snowfall a few natural avalanches are expected.

Avalanche problems

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2). Remote triggering is possible.

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.
