Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

A responsible route with regard to avalanche risk is always important in winter. It is now especially important not to tempted to take risks, when health care organizations and the civil protection authorities are dealing with Covid-19.


 The weather forecast for the next few days is good and it is likely that many will use the opportunity for outdoor recreation in the Easter. The Avalanche Weather Forecast for the Westfjords, north of Tröllaskagi, Austfirði and the Southwest corner is to warn outdoor people traveling there in avalanche areas and to provide information on avalanche conditions. The avalanche watch on IMO encourages outdoor people to abide the Civil Defense"s recommendation not to travel between parts of the country unnecessarily and take no risks in outdoor activities to mountains that can lead to accidents. Recall that avalanches can fall in incline greater than approx. 30 ° and that avalanches can reach far down below the slopes if people travel under slopes where avalanches can fall.

Enjoy a good and accident-free Easter!
