Avalanche warning for region Sunnmøre Tuesday 31.01.2023

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.

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).

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)

Snødekket er preget av regn i lavlandet og kraftige snøbyger med mye vind over tregrensen de siste dagene.

Det er generelt veldig lite snø, og det er mye oppstikkende stein særlig på rygger og vindutsatte steder.

Mandag gikk det snøbyger også i lavlandet. Kraftig vind i høyden.

Det vedvarende svake laget ved bakken i indre deler av regionen vurderes til ikke å være et skredproblem lengre, mildværet tok knekken på det.
