Avalanche: Chugach State Park

Location: Thunderbird Creek

Route & General Observations

Flying to the north I noticed a large (d2-3?) fresh slide on a north facing aspect in the thunderbird creek drainage at about 3000’ on a smaller slope. Absolutely happened after the mini refresh on Monday, probably yesterday 3/16
