Avalanche warning for region Finnmarkskysten Tuesday 30.05.2023

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

It's favorable conditions, but it may be possible to trigger small avalanches in steep terrain where the snow is very wet.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can 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)

Loose snow

Below you can see a description of the current snow cover information and current weather forecast in the mountains. If your observations deviate greatly from what is described here, the warning will not necessarily apply either. Always make your own judgments or stay away from avalanche terrain.

Avalanche risk assessment

I områder med våt løssnø i overflaten kan det være mulig å løse ut skred. Mest utsatt vil være de områdene som har fått nysnø de siste dagene. Eldre smelteomvandlet snø er stort sett stabil. Vær oppmerksom der det finnes skavler, disse kan brekke og falle ned.
