Avalanche warning for region Salten Saturday 14.05.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable avalanche conditions. Use caution in areas with wind deposited snow high in the alpine, and in steep terrain with loose, wet snow. Keep distance to areas with glide-cracks.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

New snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few 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)

Forrige helg kom det en del nysnø. Regn og mildvær denne uka har ført til at dette nå stort sett er smelteomvandlet opp til 800 - 1000 moh. Kortvarig kaldt vær lørdag 7. mai dannet et skarelag som ligger under den øverste fuktige snøen. Under skarelaget finnes det også våt smelteomvandlet snø eller fuktig fokksnø. Over 800 - 1000 moh har nedbøren som har kommet denne uka lagt seg som fuktig nysnø/fokksnø, høyt til fjells tørr fokksnø.

Selv med vedvarende mildvær og en god del regn har det vært lite skredaktivitet denne uka. Det antas derfor at snødekket drenerer relativt godt.
