Avalanche warning for region Nord-Troms Wednesday 05.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:
Avalanches can be triggered in fresh stormslabs, which can be found in many aspects when the wind direction change in the afternoon. Persistent weak layers have recently been hard to trigger, but this might have changed due to windloading 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 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 har dei siste dagane gitt transport av snø inn i nord- og vestvendte heng. Der det ikkje er avblåst, er det vindpåverka snø med varierande hardheit.

Djupare i snødekke finnast det vedvarande svake lag.
Opp til 500-800 moh er det kantkornlag i samband med skare, som ein truleg kan påverke i alle fall i nordlege delar av regionen. I heile regionen finnast det også eldre nedføyka kantkorn, men desse har det generelt vore lite aktivitet på den siste tida.

På Nordnesfjellet gjekk det eit naturleg utløyst skred søndag.
