Turnagain Pass Avalanche Awareness Day – 2024
Saturday, March 23rd

Swing by the Turnagain Pass motorized parking lot on your way to or from your backcountry ride or ski to:

  • Grab a ‘dog or burger
  • Practice your avy rescue skills, we’ll have some beacons buried for practice
  • Test out the newest snowmachines with local business Alaska Mining and Diving Supply (AMDS) and Anchorage Yamaha and Polaris
  • Or just to say hi and shoot the breeze around the fire rings :)

Stop by anytime. We’ll be setting up around 11am and tearing down around 5 or 6pm.
This event is also known as the Turnagain Takeover, the third Saturday in March. It is becoming a tradition for getting together, chowing down some hot dogs, practicing with our avalanche beacons and other rescue gear, being available to answer questions, and generally having a good time connecting with our community.
