Alaska Avalanche Danger Considerable
Posted on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012
 

According to Graham Predeger with the Chugach Avalanche Information Center, Based on information he received today, Tuesday, Feb. 14, he stated that he is lowering the avalanche danger down from high to CONSIDERABLE.

Just Beware! This does not mean avalanches can’t or won’t happen. In fact Predeger wrote in his daily advisory that ‘The mountains (around South Central) recently received additional snow… and that human triggered avalanches are still likely in steep terrain below ridges and rollovers…’

It is expected that this storm snow will continue to settle out under a calm atmosphere today.

Make sure before you venture into the backcountry that you arm yourself with the knowledge, skills and equipment needed to travel safely in mountain terrain.

If you don’t know, go with someone that does know and take a free avalanche awareness course made possible by the Alaska Department of Public Safety. Get the full schedule by ‘clicking here.’
