Avalanche warning for region Indre Troms Tuesday 17.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

New snow with wind will create small unstable storm slabs in lee areas. Wet loose avalanches can be triggered in steep terrain with wet and loose snow. There is also a weak layer buried in the snow pack in the alpine, but it is in general hard to trigger.

Avalanche problems

New snow (slab avalanches)

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

Persistent weak layer (slab avalanches)

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

Wet snow (loose snow 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

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Regn og stigende temperaturer den siste uka har gjort snøoverflaten våt og fuktig oppover i fjellet. Snødekket virker å være isotermt opp til ca 800 moh. På nasjonaldagen vil det legge seg nysnø et godt stykke ned i fjellsidene.

Rundt skare fra 23. april har det vært temperaturgradient og utviklet seg kantkorn. Det har kommet mye snø de siste ukene, og laget ligger mange steder dypt. Laget er derfor generelt vanskelig å påvirke.
