Just some information for all Aurora chaser`s who drive theirs own car; The avalanche danger in Troms county is very high these days! And the main road E6/E8 between Hatteng - Skibotn has been closed twice the last days, because of huge avalanches.
From today`s newspaper: "E6 is now open again to traffic; Two large avalanches have blocked E6 through Storfjord yesterday and today. The road is now open again, but can be closed tonight because of a new avalanche danger. It is also reported delays in traffic."
The Army tells also that has been over 100 avalanches out in the terrain the last days, so take care everybody!
For two nights ago, about five Aurora buses had to wait in 14 hours in queue on the main road E6, south of Skibotn, before they had clear the road for snow and they could drive back to Tromsø, after a NL chase into Finland, where the weather was better.
Several Aurora tours has been canceled, and probably more will be, because of this extreme bad weather and dangerous driving conditions...
Again, please take care!Edited: 5:13 am, March 12, 2014
