Avalanche warning for region Lyngen Saturday 29.05.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Generally stable avalanche conditions, but the danger for small wet avalanches increases as the temperature rises. Remember to use slightly different approaches on wet and dry snow.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few 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)

I fjellet er det generelt gjenfryst og hard skarepakke, og med små fokksnøflak i enkelte leheng. Under mildværsgrensa og der solen eventuelt står på finner man våtere og mykere snø. Snøgrensa har den siste tiden krøpet oppover og ligger nå på rundt 100-300moh de fleste steder.

I høyden finnes det både harde skarelag der vann kan hope seg opp og gamle kantkornlag lenger ned i snødekket. De gamle kantkornlaga er iferd med å smelteomvandles, men det har gått store til svært store skred på disse tidligere i mai som f.eks. Tromsdalstind, Hamperokken og Holmbuktura.
