Conditions Summary

Welcome to the Chugach State Park conditions page. We are in the process of ramping up a weekly conditions report for the Chugach Front Range. Our goal is to provide avalanche information for high use areas of the Chugach State Park in an effort to assist recreationalists in making informed and safe backcountry travel decisions.

Areas include the Anchorage Front Range (i.e., Flattop/Glen Alps) and the South Fork of Eagle River. The outlook’s primary audience will be winter hikers, backcountry skiers/snowboarders, snowmachiners, snowshoers, fat bikers, and climbers.

Field data will be collected 2-3 days per week followed by a comprehensive observation available to the public. Avalanche accident investigations will be done when needed as directed by Chugach State Park.
