Hatcher Pass Observations

Posted by

The Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center and Friends of the Chugach Avalanche Center are pleased to announce the launch of an observations program partnership with Hatcher Pass Avalanche Center. Our hope is that Hatcher Pass users will embrace the observations program in the same way Turnagain / Summit users have and begin regularly submitting observations and photos. These observations will help Hatcher Pass forecasters as they collect data for their next advisory. Click here to read recent Hatcher Pass observations. Please submit your own observations and spread the word to others!
