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)

Mandag og tirsdag var det snøbyger til havnivå.

Mandag ettermiddag/kveld var det kortvarig kraftig vind og stor snøtransport.

Det har vært store forskjeller i nysnømengde og vindstyrke innad i regionen.

Søndag fuktet mildvær snødekket opp til omtrent 700 - 800 moh.

I nordvendte sider i indre deler av regionen over 1000 moh. kan det fortsatt være vedvarende svake lag i det gamle snødekket, men det vurderes ikke til å være et aktivt skredproblem.
