Avalanche warning for region Salten Sunday 05.02.2023

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Generally unstable conditions. Natural avalanches can occur and you have to expect to trigger avalanches when venturing into steeper terrain.

Avalanche problems

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3). Remote triggering is possible.

Buried weak layer of faceted snow near surface


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.
