Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

Snow has gone through a few thaw and freeze cycles and the older snow is considered rather stable. New snow in the west and north parts after showers of snow early this week. A little new snow can be expected in mountains in the Westfjords, but later rain will reach all elevations and wet avalanches can fall in the new snow.
