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.
