Avalanche warning for region Romsdal Monday 13.04.2020

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:
Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Naturally released loose avalanches can occur in sun exposed steep terrain.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on many 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.

Plussgrader til fjelltopphøyde har gitt skarelag og virket stabiliserende på det gamle snødekket.
Det er store snømengder i høyfjellet og skavler er mange stader store.
Det har kommet litt ny snø de siste dagene som med vind har gitt ferske flakdannelser.
Det er godt skiføre mange steder.
