Avalanche warning for region Hardanger Friday 06.05.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Large amounts of rain and high temperatures will weaken the snowpack considerably. Keep good distance to avalanche terrain and run out zones for wet avalanches.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

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

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 i hovedsak smelteomvandlet. Varmen gjør at nordsider også har våt snø høyt opp. Sola har tatt godt på dagen og smeltingen går fort. Rygger og rabber er nå bare. Snøgrensa kryper oppover og i lavlandet er det langt til snøen.

Kantkorn høyt i snødekket i nordsider kan ikke utelukkes men er svært vanskelig å påvirke og er derfor ikke regnet som et skredproblem lenger.
