The Godtifonn avalanche
The group also had the chance to visit the Godtifonn avalanche track located about 25 km west of Stryn. 1 ½ years previously, a huge avalanche event released and impacted one of the most important transnational roads connecting eastern and western Norway. The name “Godtifonn” indicates an avalanche breaking during “good times” in the sense of bright weather conditions. In this region, blue sky weather conditions are often related to easterly winds leading to snow redistribution into the huge release area (Fig.2). The avalanche has a frequency of 5-10 years but normally smaller than the last event.
