Observation: Girdwood

Location: Penguin Ridge and Raggedtop Wet Slabs

Route & General Observations

We watched multiple very large wet slabs and glide avalanches release on Penguin Ridge above Girdwood this afternoon between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. At least one of the avalanches hit the Beaver Pond trail, taking out a 20 foot section of trail as the wet debris plowed through. As far as we know there were no people involved with any of the avalanches. Thank you to everyone who shared photos.
