Avalanche warning for region Voss Saturday 22.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:
Large naturally released wet avalanches are likely, also above treeline. Use great caution on recently loaded slopes in the high alpine.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

Water pooling in/above snow layers

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Loose snow

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).

Buried weak layer of new snow

Advice

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), 21.01.2022

Der det ligger sammenhengende snø består snøoverflaten hovedsakelig av vindpåvirket snø av varierende hardhet. Det gamle og stedvis beskjedne snødekket antas stabilt etter mildvær og gjenfrysing, unntatt i de høyestliggende områdene. Det er generelt lite snø under ca 1000 moh i ytre strøk. I indre strøk er det mer snø, men lokale variasjoner.

Et lite skiløperutløst skred i Myrkdalen mandag.
