Avalanche warning for region Indre Fjordane Thursday 05.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Wet snow and rain give increased danger of wet avalanches at lower altitudes. Risk of wind-deposited snow in the alpine.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2). Remote triggering is possible.

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)

Snødekket er preget av vår og mye fint vær den siste tiden. I sør, øst og vest er det gamle snødekket smelteomvandlet mens i bratte nordvendte heng i høyden kan det fortsatt ligge vintersnø. Snøgrensa ligger på 300-400 moh, høyere i bratte sørvendte heng.

Der er observert kantkorn i snødekket i høyden, laget ligger under et tynt lag med skare og er lett å påvirke. Det er også mulig nye kantkorn dannes mellom gammelt og nytt snødekke, og rundt solskare dannet i helgen.

Det ble observert et middels stort glideskred fra et område med sva i Grasdalen tirsdag kveld.
