Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Wet avalanches can occur in sun-exposed slopes, mainly loose snow avalanches but large slab avalanches can also occur if old persistent layers get wet. Be careful and avoid avalanche terrain where the snow is very wet, especially in terrain traps.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

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)

Den siste tida har mildvêr og sol påverka snødekket. Det har vore stor snøsmelting og snøgrensa har blitt noko høgare. Snøen er dei fleste stadar smelteomdanna, og frys om natta i høgda. Snøen er likevel lagdelt, og det finnast både harde skarelag der vatn kan hope seg opp, og gamle kantkornlag. Det har gått store til svært store skred på desse i starten av veka.
