Avalanche warning for region Romsdal Friday 10.04.2020

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Strong winds and snow showers will cause increased snow transport. Be careful where the fresh snow accumulates and be aware that big cornices are unstable. At low altitudes, the snow is still wet.

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)

Eldre snødekke har fått varme opp mot dei høgaste toppane. Kaldare netter og noko vind har gitt uttørking og skaredanning. Det er finkorna snødekke på dei høgaste toppane. Det er store snømengder i høgfjellet og toppskavlar er mange stader store. Moderate mengder fokksnø etter snøfall skjærtorsdag.

Varme har tatt bort lagdelinga i eldre snødekke opp til omlag skoggrensa, men over dette nivået er lagdeling intakt og snødekket drenerer dårlig. Ellers ikkje relevante svake lag.
