"Warning for avalanches in the mountains"

"Several avalanches have been in the mountains the last few days and the risk of new is significant."

"– it's Snowing a lot and blowing it becomes very avalanches, " says lavinexperten Karin Trolin."

"In an avalanche in Kittelfjäll on Sunday buried a man in the snow is. He could be dug up with the help of their friends, and were able to escape more difficult damage."

"On boxing day sparked the three skiers, an avalanche on the Svartberget in Åre. The avalanche was approximately 40 metres wide and 80 metres long. Not, nor injured anyone seriously."

"After large amounts of snow have fallen there is significant lavinfara level three on a five-point scale – in the western vindel mountain and the southern mountains of jämtland, according to the environmental protection agency, the services lavinprognoser.see."

"a Lot of people on the mountains"

"In the western Härjedalsfjällen deemed lavinfaran moderate, level two."

" At the moment, it is very much people moving on the mountains and then there are more who will be affected. Around the christmas–new year it tends to be a lot, " says Karin Trolin, who works at the Åre lavincenter and is the account manager for the forecasts of Jämtland and Härjedalen."

"Karin Trolin calls on the who are out on the mountain to follow lavinprognoserna. In addition to lavinprognoser.see, has many ski resorts own warnings."

"– Is it lavinfara should not go where it is over 30 degrees steep."

"Equipment and knowledge."

"The avalanches affecting people are in 85% of cases triggered by ourselves," says Karin Trolin."

"– You might go on a place where you not in the know, or follow after anyone else outside of a ski area. Or you think just that it looks nice and goes, " she says."

"Karin Trolin recommend to have a transceiver, probe and shovel – and knowledge."

"– You should not buy the over-reliance, but the stuff is even an emergency exit. If an accident occurs, it must learn to manage it so that you can quickly find their peers. This can be done via a course or with friends who can."

"don't Go over open, smooth and steep snowfields days after heavy snowfall, strong winds or soaring temperatures. Most avalanches occur the day after sharply a snowstorm."

"Avoid whatsoever to cross the pristine snowfield in steep terrain."

"If you have to cross a steep snowfield, make it as high up as possible. If you are a many, year one at a time. Then, the load will be on the snow less."

"if possible Choose a road where there are rocks, trees and other things that bind the snow, or along the crests and spines."
