Avalanche warning for region Nord-Troms Friday 07.01.2022

Danger level 3 - Considerable avalanche danger

Published:

Slab avalanches can be triggered in fresh stormslabs and on persistent weak layers. Storm slabs will be present in many aspects. Persistent weak layers are also possible to trigger, especially around the threeline, and can give large avalanches.

Avalanche problems

Persistent weak layer (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). Remote triggering is possible.

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).

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 fokksnøflak av varierande hardheit. I skogen er det lausare snø.

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 vanskelegare å påverke den siste tida.
