Avalanche warning for region Vest-Telemark Thursday 20.01.2022

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

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Det er generelt lite snø i regionen med mye oppstikkende stein og vegetasjon. I østvendte leområder i høyfjellet finnes fokksnø, ellers er snødekket preget av skare.
