BACKCOUNTRY AVALANCHE HAZARD

Below Tree Line: Below Threshold.
The Copper River Highway avalanche season is officially over, as there is no longer enough snow to affect the highway. Backcountry users should continue to use caution above tree line. Small to medium sized avalanches may occur as our spring shed continues. Avoid cornices, glide cracks, and steep loaded slopes during the heat of the day.
