Avalanche warning for region Salten Sunday 15.05.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable avalanche conditions. Use caution in areas with wind deposited snow high in the alpine, and in steep terrain with loose, wet snow. Keep distance to areas with glide-cracks.

Avalanche problems

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).

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

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.
