Avalanche warning for region Salten Thursday 19.05.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable avalanche conditions. Use caution in areas with wind deposited snow and cornices and where the sun makes the snow surface wet and soft.

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)

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can trigger avalanches on a few 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.
