What’s your mind-set?
Complacent because the winter is over? Or attentive to the changing conditions, possibility for avalanches, and avoiding avalanche terrain during the spring thaw phase?
WET AVALANCHE HAZARD
The spring shed is here. Wet-loose and wet slab avalanches litter the landscape at Hatcher Pass. These types of avalanches will continue to be active and will have large runnout distances. Use extra caution around steep slopes (30°+) and in the runnout of these slopes. Avoid avalanche terrain when temperatures rise rapidly, there is a lack of overnight freezing temperatures, when solar radiation is high, and/or the occurrence of significant rain.
Watch for peak avalanche activity in the afternoon to early evening on all aspects, especially E-S-W, but also be aware that all aspects at any time of day may produce large avalanches under the right conditions, listed above.
The Archangel groomed road has the potential for avalanches to reach it. Use extra caution in this area.
