Chugach NF Avalanche Center  Girdwood, Alaska


Dangerous (remote trigger) avalanche conditions reported in Petersville and Cantwell this week. Please ride prepared w transceiver, shovel, probe EVERYDAY in EVERY ZONE! You never know when you may be called on to help a fellow rider! #getthegear #getthetraining #remotetrigger #avalanche #playsafe

Unusual avalanche conditions warrant extra conservative travel these days. More warm and stormy weather headed to the Turnagain Pass region - avalanche danger expected to reach HIGH later today. Current snowpack is VERY unstable - two avalanches triggered remotely yesterday from a group several hundred feet away and on different aspects. See CNFAIC.org for more. #dangerousavalanches #persistantslabs #conservativeterrainchoices #playsafe

Huge thanks to all the folks that showed up at AMDS to talk about avalanche safety and share stories of lessons learned from past avalanche events. We also want to thank AMDS for hosting and supporting avalanche awareness in the snowmachine community! @chugachavy @akmining #getthetraining #playsafe #knowbeforeyougo #snowtosealevel

TONIGHT @akmining with @chugachavyfriends
Time to get your head in the avalanche game! #getthetraining #lessonslearned #cnfaic

Warm storm headed our way - heavy snowfall, rain and high winds expected to increase the avalanche danger to HIGH - HEADS UP! Good news for snow lovers, but today is not the day to venture into avalanche terrain. See more on today’s avalanche advisory at CNFAIC.org ! #turnagainpass #warmstormontheway #highdanger #playsafe

Remote triggered avalanche on Common Bowl, Tincan, yesterday in Turnagain Pass. Be aware of elevated avalanche danger this weekend at Turnagain Pass due a storm moving through our region. Our current snowpack has very poor structure and warming temps, increasing winds and precipitation will be adding lots of stress. #gettheforecast #donttipthebalance #remotetrigger #cnfaic #dontpushyourluck

Natural avalanches and remotely triggered avalanches from the past couple days. There is weak faceted snow below the slab. This type of set-up is slow to stabilize! Extra caution is advised this weekend! Lots of whumpfs and shooting cracks. The snowpack is saying, "Hey, I am unstable." Make good terrain choices!

It was an impressive day for shooting cracks on Sunburst today! #getthepicture #gettheforecast #sunburst #playsafe #snowtosealevel

Stay tuned this week as a series of storm systems move into the Eastern Turnagain Arm. Avalanche danger will rise in sync with snowfall and wind! The first small storm has added 5-8" in Girdwood and Portage Valley at the upper elevations this morning, but Turnagain Pass remains sparse with only 1-2" new.

Fresh video and snowpack update at CNFAIC.ORG today. Heather and Aleph toured up to Seattle ridge to have a look at what will be the foundation of our snowpack on the motorized side of the highway. #seattleridge #repeatoffender #turnagainpass #chugachavy #snowtosealevel #playsafe

We’re sad to report a confirmed avalanche fatality at Hatcher Pass today on Marmot Mountain (President's Ridge Area). @h_p_a_c is gathering more info and will post preliminary information at hpavalanche.org soon.
Our hearts go out to family and friends on this eve of Thanksgiving.

Avalanche triggered yesterday in the Carter Lake area on the Kenai. Triggered remotely while hiking near a ridgeline (foot penetration by ptarmigan hunter). No one caught. More details at cnfaic.org’s observation page. With 2-6” of new light snow today - be aware of what is hidden underneath: old wind slabs sitting on weak faceted snow - as in the case above - is the most likely avalanche scenario to cause grief. #earlyseasonavalanches #oldwindslabsonfacets #playsafe #snowtosealevel
