Due to the conditions, Sunday, March 29 was the last day that we posted new avalanche advisories this season. Thank you to everyone who helped suppot SAC this winter. Support from the National Forest Service and private sponsors as well as individual donors make this program financially possible. Thank you to the professional observers and to everyone else who took the time to send us information.
