Two avalanches closed down portions of the Seward Highway in Southcentral Alaska today, although a
section has been reopened to Girdwood, places still remained closed at air time as road crews work to clear the snow. Outside of Alaska Winter has been relatively mild in the Pacific Northwest. The snowpack in most of the region’s mountains is well below normal. But it’s still been a deadly season in the backcountry.
