Danger Sign

No signs observed Område: I denne fjellsiden

Snow Cover

73 cm in total Some snow drift Layered snow begins at 500 masl Crust Moist Under 500 moh grov fuktig mf. Over 500 smelte/frys skare som stedvis bryter. Det legges tørr til fuktig ny snø i le for s/sø vind.

Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Det er fortsatt tydelig lagdeling i snøen med store forskjeller i fasthet. Kantkorn ved bakken som ligger under flere lag med hard snø/is. Dette laget virker å være under nedbryting, men var store. Snødekket vil trolig stabilisere seg pga smelting fra luft og bakke. Forecast correct

Danger Sign

No signs observed

Snow Cover

100 cm in total Snow line at 100 masl Other Very wet Gjennomvåt smelteomvandlet i topp men fra tregrense bærende selv på fot ut på ettermiddagen. I høyden ligger det fortsatt skare i skyggesider.

Avalanche Danger Assessment

1 Low Snødekket er hardt og det er relativt lave temperaturer i fjellet. Evt naturlig utløste skred vil være begrenset til små skred i solvente sider. Lave temperaturer og hardt snødekket gjør at også kantkornlaget som ligger dypt heller ikke vil kunne påvirkes før det blir høyere temperaturer. Skredfaren vurderes til liten værutsiktene de kommende dagene tilsier fortsatt lav skredfare

Avalanche Activity

25. May. During the day (+02:00) No avalanche activity
