Avalanche warning for region Indre Fjordane Friday 13.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Be careful on steep slopes with soft and wet snow, a skier can trigger avalanches here. Be also careful in areas with fresh wind deposited snow, especially close to terrain traps. Keep distance to cornices and areas with glide-cracks.

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)

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches 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)

Onsdag og natt til torsdag kom det 20-50 mm nedbør, stort sett som regn, som nysnø bare på de høyeste toppene.

Snødekket er stort sett smelteomvandlet og drenerer smeltevannet godt, det er kun i nordhellinger langt til fjells at de er mulig å finne lagdelt snø.

Mange steder i fjellet er det fortsatt mye snø, men snøfrie rabber og rygger stikker fram mange steder også i høyden. Snøgrensa nærmer seg tregrensa mange steder nå, den er høyest i bratte sørvendte sider.

Søndag løsnet noen middels store glideskred i Skjeringsdalen.
