Eastern Alaska Range Snow Observations
A small fraction of terrain frequented by backcountry travelers has a professional avalanche forecast available. For this reason, the Alaska Avalanche Information Center encourages users to share what they see.The Delta Range (Eastern Alaskan Range) accessed from the Richardson Highway between Paxson and Donnelly Dome is a fantastic winter playground.
This is a data-sparse area; shared observations create an ongoing history of snow and weather that can help recreationists plan and prepare for success in the backcountry.
Please contribute your avalanche, snow and weather observations in the comments below or on the EARAC Facebook page!
Any contribution is a good contribution! Simply sharing a photo from your trip gives other users useful information. How was the snow? Was there a fresh dump? If so, how much? Where were you when you took the photo or swam around is waist deep pow?
Any information helps other users be more informed, able to make better decisions, and ultimately stay safe.
