Observation: Summit

Location: Seward Highway from Summit Lake to Beluga Point

Route & General Observations

Very subjective observation from my commute: ceilings were quite low, so views of the slopes were few and far between. Although the snow was “fluff”, many trees at lower levels had bent branches or trunks due to snow accumulation. Yet, there appeared to be significantly LESS snow accumulation in the passes than there was roadside in Turnagain Arm. Temperatures at road level was mostly in the lower 20s (F) but in Turnagain Arm is was in the mid and upper 20s with a WEST wind.
