Just a heads up that the Troopers, Mountain Rescue, Forest Service, Ski Patrol and other groups will be holding their annual interagency avalanche SAR practice in Turnagain Pass this weekend. I believe they are planning their practice areas so as not to interfere with recreational riders, and those areas will be marked.

But please be aware there will be helicopters, sleds, skiers etc practicing avalanche search and rescue in various places around Turnagain on both Saturday and Sunday.
