Avalanche warning for region Indre Fjordane Saturday 07.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Wet avalanches can release in steep terrain in lower areas and in sun exposed slopes where the sun comes out. Wind slabs are a problem at high elevations. Avoid areas beneath visible gliding cracks, glide avalanches can occur.

Avalanche problems

New snow (slab avalanches)

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

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously 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

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)

Snødekket er preget av høye temperaturer de siste par dagene. I sør, øst og vest er det gamle snødekket smelteomvandlet, mens i bratte nordvendte heng i høyden kan det fortsatt ligge vintersnø.
Snøgrensa ligger på 300-400 moh, høyere i bratte sørvendte heng.

Der er observert kantkorn i snødekket i høyden, laget ligger under et tynt lag med skare og er lett å påvirke.

Natt til fredag løsnet et stort glideskred i Grasdalen.
