COPPER RIVER HIGHWAY AVALANCHE HAZARD
Outlook: The CRH avalanche season is done.
BACKCOUNTRY AVALANCHE HAZARD
Above Tree Line: MODERATE Use caution around cornices, glide cracks, and steep unsupported slopes.
Tree Line: LOW Use caution around glide cracks and steep unsupported slopes.
Below Tree Line: None
Our spring shed continues, but not enough snow remains to affect the highway. Backcountry users should still use caution in the upper mountains, especially during the heat of the day or if we get heavy rain.
Please email me if you would like to be added or removed from this email list.
