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)

Snødekket er onsdag stort sett smelteomvandlet og drenerer smeltevannet godt, det er kun i nordhellinger langt til fjells at de er mulig å finne lagdelt snø, men også her har mildværet smelteomvandlet overflaten de siste dagene. Mange steder i fjellet ligger det fortsatt svært mye snø, men det har smeltet mye snø de siste dagene, og bare rabber og rygger stikker fram mange steder også i høyden. Snøgrensa nærmer seg tregrensa mange steder nå, den er høyest i bratt sørvendt terreng.
