Copper River Highway avalanche hazard expected to remain elevated this week

We received 3 inches of water Friday and Saturday, with the freezing line above our local peaks. Expect another 3 inches of water tonight into Tuesday. The avalanche hazard will probably remain elevated through Tuesday.

Copper River Highway avalanche hazard moderate and increasing

A dramatic change in weather has begun. Models suggest 2 inches of water Sunday and Monday. Precipitation has started as snow down to sea level, but the freezing level looks to climb to 2,000 feet Monday. This should translate into 20 inches of snow in the upper mountains and a bunch of slop at sea level.

Avalanche hazard remains at moderate with new overnight snowfall

Natural avalanche activity may occur during the heat of the storm, though activity is unlikely to affect the highway. Precipitation looks to slow down Friday morning and taper through the day. Backcountry users should use extra caution through Friday while the snow pack adjusts.

Avalanche hazard remains moderate, but should decrease through Thursday

Copper River Highway avalanche hazard remains at moderate, but could decrease as the week continues, Alaska Avalanche Information Center reports. A large storm brought heavy precipitation Sunday evening through Monday.

Copper River Highway avalanche hazard increased this week

The Alaska Avalanche Information Center reports an increasing hazard early this week due to heavy snow.
