Onset of winter in northern regions brings heightened avalanche danger

Edition: 21.10., 17:00 Next update: 23.10., 18:00 Validity


Your observations can improve the quality of the avalanche bulletin. The avalanche warning service is grateful for every observation report it receives. Together with a wealth of other information, your reports from the field are given consideration when we assess the avalanche danger. It is impossible, however, to reflect the exact content of each individual report in the avalanche bulletin.

Please report your observations of avalanches or alarm signs, or your estimation of the avalanche danger, or simply send us a picture illustrating the current situation.

The best way to file a report is by completing the interactive form on this page. If your report is to be used in the 5 pm avalanche bulletin, it should be submitted before 2:30 pm if possible. Reports received later will be given consideration in the next assessment.

Other reporting options:

  • White Risk app
  • E-mail to
  • Freephone number 0800 800 187
