...Special Avalanche Bulletin...

The following message is transmitted at the request of the Chugach National Forest Avalanche
Center - 4 pm March 16, 2018

The Chugach National Forest Avalanche Center in Girdwood AK has issued a Special Avalanche

* Timing...In effect from 4pm March 16, to 6am Monday, March 19, 2018.

* Affected Area...For Turnagain Pass and the Kenai and Western Chugach Mountains in and around
Eastern Turnagain Arm.

* Avalanche Danger... Dangerous avalanche conditions will exist through the weekend due to 2-4 feet
of snow sitting on an unstable base. Large human triggered avalanches have occurred every day this
week and are likely through the weekend on all aspects and elevations. Natural avalanche activity will
increase in the afternoons with daily warming and/or sun.

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions... Choose terrain that is flat or less than 30 degrees in steepness
and avoid runout zones for a safe weekend. Careful snowpack evaluation, cautious route-finding and
conservative decision-making skills will be necessary to identify and avoid unstable slopes.

Similar avalanche danger may exist at locations outside the coverage area of any avalanche center.
Check for your closest avalanche center and to learn more about how to identify
avalanche hazards.

This Special Bulletin does not apply to ski areas or highways where avalanche reduction measures
are performed.

For more information visit or call: CNFAIC staff on duty,
