Avalanche warning for region Hallingdal Wednesday 18.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

The avalanche danger varies during the day. High temperature and sun elevates the danger of wet avalanches. Even if it's not likely, we can not exclude the possibility to one or two natural released avalanche. Keep distance to cornices and areas with glide-cracks. Highest danger is in western parts of the region.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

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.
