Avalanche warning for region Indre Troms Thursday 13.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

General unstable conditions. Natural avalanches are expected. Avoid avalanche release and run out areas.

Avalanche problems

Wind drifted snow (slab avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury a car or destroy a small house (size 3).

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)

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)

Fra tidlig denne uka har vinden stått på i regionen og flyttet snø inn i nordøstvendte heng. Før vinden begynte å ta var det mye løssnø vest i regionen.

Onsdag har mildvær fuktet snødekke opp til ca 400moh.

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. Observasjon tatt på 640 moh nær Øverbygd bekrefter at kantkornlaget har godt potensiale til bruddforplantning når den først bryter.

Tirsdag ble det løst ut et lite flakskred i NV-vendt heng ved Kalvhauet.
