Officials warn of avalanche danger on Flume Trail

The City and Borough of Juneau is warning residents not to access the Perseverance Trail system via the Flume Trail.

The Basin Road Bridge is the main access to Perseverance. But it was closed this morning for construction. It also will be closed Monday.

The Flume Trail is the secondary access. But due to the risk of avalanches, it’s not considered safe.

The city’s avalanche forecast has been discontinued until next winter. But a notice on the city’s website says the risk of slides is still significant the higher you go into the mountains.
