Avalanche warning for region Indre Troms Saturday 08.01.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Slab avalanches can be triggered in fresh storm slabs and on persistent weak layers. Storm slabs are present in many aspects. Persistent weak layers are also possible to trigger, and can give large avalanches.

Avalanche problems

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).

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). 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)

Sterk vind fra skiftende retning har siden søndag transportert og påvirket snøoverflaten. Der det ikke er avblåst, er det hard vindpåvirket snø over skoggrensa. Under snøgrensa er det fremdeles mye ubunden snø.

Dypere i snødekke finnes det vedvarende svake lag. Generelt har disse vært vanskelig å påvirke den siste tida, men noen steder er det likevel observert drønn i snøen.

Fredag er det kaldt, klart og lite vind.
