Avalanche warning for region Vest-Telemark Friday 04.12.2020

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger here.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)
