Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

So far little snow except some new snow and drift snow high in the mountains away from the coast in the Eastfjords and in SW-Iceland, as well as in Tröllaskagi. Wind slabs on lee slopes in many areas can be unstable. Warm weather in the next few days will increase the temperature of the snowpack.
