It is in general a stable snowpack. Be careful if you find very wet snow, especially in terrain traps, since wet avalanches can occur.

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)

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten er frossen i skyggesider over mildværsgrensa, og våt og myk under mildværsgrensa og der solen tar.

Det finnes likevel lagdelt snø høyt til fjells. Dei tidlegare vedvarande svake laga av kantkorn har starta å bli avrunda, men det kan ikkje utelukkast at dei framleis kan føre til skred i enkelte heng ved svært stor belastning.
