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)


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)

Snøoverflaten er generelt våt løssnø. Høyt til fjells og i nordvendte heng kan det være skare som tiner utover dagen.

Hele snødekket er nå smelteomvandlet og isotermt, med unntak av et par tynne skarelag, og rester av vedvarende svake lag som er i ferd med å bli smelteomvandlet høyt til fjells.
