Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

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

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)

I solvendt terreng består snødekket i hovedsak av smelteomvandlet snø. I nordvendte sider høyt til fjells kan det finnes tørrsnø, noen steder med overflatekantkorn. Lengst ned mot fjorden er det nå barmark. Snøgrensa er lavest i nordlige fjellsider og betydelig høyere i fjellsider mot sør. Oppe i fjellet er det fortsatt mye snø.

Overflatekant er tidligere observert i skyggesider høyt til fjells, men har nå trolig svært liten utbredelse.

Lørdag gikk mildvær til ca 1100-1200 moh. Natt til søndag var det nattefrost i fjellet.
