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)

Det er generelt lite snø i regionen og det er få områder med sammenhengende snødekke. Mye terreng og steiner preger snøoverflaten. Fredag snødde det riktignok til havnivå, men under 600 moh ligger nysnøen på bar bakke. Fra 600 moh er snøfordelingen ujevn og flekkvis.

Fredag ble det observert kantkorn ved bakken i Sirdal. Dette regnes ikke som et skredproblem foreløpig.

Lengst sør i regionen kom det ca. 10 cm snø på lørdag.
