Avalanche warning for region Indre Troms Thursday 06.01.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Avalanches can be triggered in fresh storm slabs. Persistent weak layers have recently been hard to trigger, but this might have changed due to wind loading of the snowpack the last days.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily 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 a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

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)

Sterk vind frå skiftande retning har sidan søndag transportert og påverka snø. Der det ikkje er avblåst, er det vindpåverka snø med varierande hardheit.

Djupare i snødekke finnast det vedvarande svake lag. Generelt har desse vore vanskeleg å påverka den siste tida, men nokre stadar er det likevel observert drønn i snøen.
