Avalanche warning for region Hardanger Wednesday 27.04.2022

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:
Generally hard and stable snowcover. Wet avalanches can release due to sun and high temperatures if the sun can reach through the clouds. Keep distance to cornices and areas with glide-cracks.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Glide avalanches

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

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)

Snøoverflaten er preget av det varme været etter påske og er i hovedsak smelteomvandlet der sola har fått tak. Varmen gjør at nordsider også har våt snø høyt opp.
Klare netter har gitt gjenfrysing, men sola tar godt på dagen og smeltingen går fort. Snøgrensa kryper oppover.

Det er observert kantkorn over eller mellom skarelag. Lagene er i ferd med å bli fuktige og får derfor færre ugunstige egenskaper.
