Avalanche warning for region Svartisen Wednesday 11.05.2022

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.

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)

Høyt til fjells, særlig i indre deler av regionen ligger det stedvis fokksnø i leområder og forsenkinger etter snøværet i helgen og mandag. Der hvor vinden har tatt tak, er det avblåst til isete mildværsskare fra sist fredag. I lavere fjellområder er snødekket preget av mildværet og fokksnøen fra helgen er fuktet opp. Det gamle snødekket er smelteomvandlet.

Temperaturen synker et lite knepp, som er gunstig for stabiliteten i snødekket, som allerede har vært gjennom flere runder med mildvær og regn.
