Avalanche warning for region Helgeland Sunday 28.05.2023

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Be careful in areas with fresh wind-deposited snow at higher elevations. A few small wet loose snow avalanches can occur under the zero degree line.

Avalanche problems

New snow (slab avalanches)

You can trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Buried weak layer of new snow

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously 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


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.
