Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Colder temps and newly formed wind slabs rise the avalanche danger. Use great caution on recently loaded slopes in the alpine.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Der det ligger sammenhengende snødekke i høyden består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av fokksnø av varierende hardhet. Det gamle snødekket antas stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing, unntatt i de aller høyestliggende områdene. Det er generelt lite snø, mest i indre strøk.

Fredag og lørdag er det stigende mildværsgrense.
