Avalanche warning for region Lyngen Sunday 02.02.2020

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
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 here.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily 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)

Mye vind fra SØ den siste uka har flyttet og omfordelt snøen. Over tregrensa er snødekket for det meste hardt og vindherjet, mens på skjermede områder og i skogen kan det fortsatt finnes noe løssnø.

Det er observert et løst lag med små kantkorn rundt skarelag fra 20/1 flere steder i regionen, men dette laget har vært vanskelig å påvirke og viser lite tegn til bruddforplantning.
