Avalanche warning for region Romsdal Friday 28.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Avoid lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger there. Turning wind direction will cause avalanche problems in new directions during day.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Lavlandet bærer preg av mildvær og det er generelt lite snø under skoggrensen. I høyfjellet over ca. 1200 moh. består snøoverflaten av fokksnø med varierende hardhet, i vindutsatt terreng er det avblåst til bakken eller skare. Det gamle snødekket er stabilt etter flere runder med mildvær.
