Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Det er fortsatt godt skiføre og rikelig med snø i fjellet. Varmen den siste tiden har smeltet frem rygger og rabber, og snødekket består nå av smelteformer som fryser på natten og smelter på dagen. I leheng mot øst ligger det flere meter snø. I sørvendte skråninger er det nå dårlig skiføre under tregrensen. Under 400-500 moh. er det overveiende barmark.

Det kan finnes kantkorn i enkelte nordvendte heng høyt til fjells, men det er ikke observert aktivitet i laget på lang tid.

Glideskred og skavlbrudd forekommer fortsatt.
