Avalanche warning for region Vest-Finnmark Friday 28.05.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Generally stable avalanche conditions, but the danger for small wet avalanches increases where there is most rain. Remember to use different approaches on wet and dry 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)


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

Det finnes likevel lagdelt snø høyt til fjells. Vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn er i ferd med å smelteomvandles, men det kan ikke utelukkes at de fremdeles kan føre til skred i enkelte heng ved svært stor belastning eller oppvarming.
