Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten består i hovedsak av vindpåvirket snø.
Under skoggrensen ligger den løse nysnøen rett på bakken.


Høyere i terrenget er det en liten såle av skaresnø fra tidligere i høst.


Rundt skarelag har det dannet seg kantkorn og det er observasjoner på nedføyket overflaterim.

Det er utløst små skred av skiløpere. Overflaterim har vært det svake laget.
