JPW Road and Bridge Highways Maintenance have been monitoring the snow conditions on the mountain adjacent to the Highway on the way from the Chase Creek bridge to the top of Mattey’s Hill. At this time no concerns for avalanches are expected, however if there is significant snowfall in the next few days, there may be a need for avalanche control. This is done using explosive charges dropped from a helicopter. The explosives can be loud and disturbing for some people and pets. The Village of Chase will provide updates as information becomes available.
