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).

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

on some 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)

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 og langfredag.

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.
