Avalanche warning for region Trollheimen Thursday 28.04.2022

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:
Wind and fresh snow may give instable conditions in some slopes. Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger. Avoid convex terrain.

Avalanche problems

New snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

New snow (loose snow avalanches)

Avalanches may release spontaneously 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.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Hele snødekket er påvirket av mildværet som var i påsken og uken etter påske. I bratt nordvendt terreng i høyfjellet ligger det fortsatt vintersnø under nysnøen. Over skoggrensen har det kommet noe ny snø sammen med vind fra vest og nordvest. Den nye snøen blir fort fuktig der solen ligger på.

Det er observert rim og kantkorn i overflaten i nord, nordøst og nordvest i Romsdal. Dette kan også finnes noen plasser i Trollheimen. Når nysnøen legger seg oppå dette kan det dannes flak som er svært lette å løse ut. Det kan ikke utelukkes at dette finnes i flere himmelretninger.
Kantkornet som er dannet før påske er stabilisert de fleste steder.
