Avalanche warning for region Romsdal Sunday 21.03.2021

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:
It is easy to trigger fresh wind slabs in sheltered terrain. These will be most sensitive at high elevation where the snow is colder and dryer.

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.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Sola har tidlegare i veka varma opp overflata i bratte solvendte heng, og det er solskare av varierande tjukkleik under fersk snø. Det er fortsatt ganske lite snø i regionen, men nysnøen dekker ein del bare flekkar, rabbar, stein og kratt.

Vedvarande svake lag frå kuldeperioda i januar/februar kan framleis vere eit problem nokre stadar over ca 1200 moh.

Naturleg utløyste laussnøskred vart observert ved Skarven i Isfjorden og i Vengedalen fredag.

Det henger store skavler fra mange rygger og egger, fremfor alt mot øst.
