Avalanche warning for region Voss Monday 17.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Avoid 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 there.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

I fjellet har det de siste dagene lagt seg opp ferske fokksnøflak i leheng mot øst. Det gamle snødekket som ble vått onsdag og torsdag har fryst til i overflaten.

Observasjoner fredag viser at det er mye vann i snødekket.
