Avalanche warning for region Svartisen Monday 16.05.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable conditions. Be careful in steep slopes with wind slabs at higher elevations. In very steepe terrain with wet snow there is still a danger for triggering small wet snow avalanches.

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.
