Alyeska got 40” of new snow the past few days. The avy danger was high yesterday and they weren’t able to get the mountain open.
Today, they’ve got warmer temperatures which is creating high avy danger once more.
“Mountain Update: All this water is creating high spring avy conditions, the mountain will not open for skiing today. The tram is running for sight-seeing. Thanks for your patience!” – Alyeska ski resort
Pretty cool that they got so much snow this late in the year.
