Avalanche warning for region Indre Fjordane Monday 17.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Wind and fresh snow may give instable conditions. Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger there. Especially avoid convex terrain.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab 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)

I fjellet har det de siste dagene lagt seg opp ferske fokksnøflak i leheng mot øst. Det gamle snødekket som ble vått onsdag og torsdag har fryst til i overflaten. Generelt lite snø i lavlandet og i ytre del. Mest snø i indre og høyereliggende del av regionen.

Fredag ble det gjennomført skredkontroll (ved bruk av sprengstoff) langs Rv. 15, i Napefonna gikk det et svært stort skred som følge av skredkontrollen.
