Avalanche bulletin

Avalanche conditions

There was strong snow drifting in NA-winds last week with many big slab avalanches in Westfjords and some middle size in the North.

Yeasterday it went warm on mountain ridges most places with some slab avalanches in the Westfjords. Now it has refrozen so the old snow is gaining strength but the surfacecrust is already getting buried by a new wind slab in strong SW winds in the Wes and North.
