Avalanche warning for region Lofoten og Vesterålen Tuesday 31.01.2023

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:
Generally stable conditions, but be careful in steep terrain, especially where wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger here.

Avalanche problems

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)

Eldre snøpakke består av smelteomvandlet fuktig snø med innslag av skarelag. Over dette er det litt tørr nysnø eller fokksnø.

Med kaldere vær kan det bli kantkornutvikling rundt skarelaget som ligger mellom den gamle fuktige snøen og nysnøen som ligger over. Dette kan utvikle seg til et nytt skredproblem.
