on some steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Der det ligger sammenhengende snø består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av vindpåvirket snø med varierende hardhet. Det gamle og stedvis beskjedne snødekket antas å være stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing. Det er generelt lite snø i regionen.

Få observasjoner de siste dagene, men det er også lite snø i store deler av regionen.
