Avalanche!

December 3, 2013

Did you know we have environments that are favourable to avalanches in Finland? The Finnish Meteorological Institute issues an avalanche forecast for northern Finland in the winter.

The FMI and the mainstream media are always on top of these things and post the warnings when they come, for example, here’s one from last spring.

Way back in 2004 when the Mr. and I hiked in the Malla Strict Nature Reserve (Kilpisjärvi), I saw evidence of avalanches and the trail we hiked on had warning signs…. I had no idea! The following picture is from the same trip, but from northern Norway, where we did going hiking in a place and the evidence of avalanches was visible.

Ski season is already underway in northern Finland, so be careful out there!
