In Salten, on Helgeland, and on Svartisen, major avalanche danger warnings have been issued for the last days of the Easter holidays. 

In several other places in the north, there is also a considerable danger of avalanches (level 3).

“Avoid all avalanche terrain. Large naturally triggered avalanches are expected in the high mountains,” varsom.no warns.

Danger level 3 applies to Lyngen, Indre Troms, Ofoten, and Nordenskiöld Land on Spitsbergen.

When there’s significant avalanche danger, large avalanches can be triggered even with a small additional load on the steep slopes.
