Avalanche: Hatcher Pass

Location: Archangel Rd, Gold Mint P Lot

Route & General Observations

The Road was closed so we parked at Au Mint and crossed the river. We could clearly see crowns almost everywhere. We could not see a significant amount of snow across Fishhook Rd. We observed that the two avalanches that crossed Archangel Rd deposited the debris on fresh snowmachine tracks. Wind board everywhere except in the willows, poor dog conditions, 1-2′ fresh snow.
