Close Call In The Mountains

Clyde Hewitt

A Fairbanks man survived burial by an avalanche in the HooDoo Mountains. The accident in the popular snow machining area near Summit Lake, off the Richardson Highway, was the one of 2 in recent weeks, and as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, there are lessons to be learned.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
