Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Snøoverflaten består av tung og myk snø etter flere dager uten særlig gjenfrysing. Snødekket begynner å bli tynt og uten lagdeling i mange sørvendte heng, mens det fortsatt er en del snø og noe lagdeling i nordvendte heng. Snøgrensen ligger på 600-1000 moh og er lavest i skyggesider.

I det gamle snødekket lå det tidligere vedvarende svake lag. Disse antas nå å ha blitt omdannet til smelteformer mange steder, men i nordvendte heng kan det fortsatt finnes rester.
