Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center 2015

The Chugach National Forest Avalanche Info Center would like to extend a big THANK YOU to the Arctic Man organizers, Alaska State Troopers and all of the participants who attended an Avalanche Rescue Workshop at Arctic Man this year.


We had nearly 100 people in attendance throughout the week taking the time to learn how to affect a safe and successful avalanche rescue.  For this, we are confident the Alaskan back country is a bit safer for everyone.  We hope to see you all again in 2016!!!
