Observation: Girdwood

Location: Roof avalanches on roofs not meant to slide

Route & General Observations

There have been reports of shingled roofs with snow/ice on them that are avalanching. These types of roofs are not mean to shed snow and this is creating a dangerous situation for areas below roofs that do not often see the snow slide off. This exact thing happened at our offices in Girdwood. With warm stormy weather on the horizon, we recommend taking notice of snow/ice still remaining on roofs and taking precautions in the event that snow/ice could slide off even if it ‘has never happened before’.
