Avalanche warning for region Indre Fjordane Sunday 15.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Be careful on steep slopes with soft and wet snow, a skier can trigger avalanches here. 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 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)

De site dagene har det kommet nysnø i fjellet med varierende snøgrense. Snødekket under nysnøen er stort sett smelteomvandlet og homogent. Det er kun i nordhellinger langt til fjells at det er mulig å finne lagdelt "gammelsnø". Mange steder i fjellet er det fortsatt mye snø særlig i leområder, men rygger og rabber har mange steder smelta fram. Snøgrensa er omtrent på 500 moh, høyere i sørvendte hellinger.
