Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

The avalanche bulletins from the IMO are not produced after 1st June.

Updated July 4th

Considerable snow has accumulated in places in the northern part of Iceland in a snowstorm in the last few days. Avalanches have released in Ólafsfjörður from this storm. This new snow could take some time to stabilize and people travelling in mountains should be extra careful in steep snow-covered slopes where new snow has accumulated. If new snow falls on the spring melting snow, the stability could decrease temporarily.

The next avalanche bulletin will be published the 15th October.
