Sign up now for the Beacon Scramble and support the Coastal Alaska Avalanche Center! We buried five avalanche beacons on the mountain. You have until 1:30 PM on Sunday, January 24 to find them!

After registering, you’ll be emailed a treasure map with clues for where to search. When you locate a beacon, look for a nearby tree marked with a letter of the alphabet. Find all the letters, the password is revealed, and you’re entered to win fun prizes from Nugget Alaskan Outfitter & Foggy Mountain Shop.

It’s only $10, though you may consider a larger donation. The course is not timed. Complete it over the weekend or in a couple of hours. All ages. Must have your own beacon and probe to participate.

Course Opens:
Friday, January 22, 2021 @ 12:00 PM

Course Closes:

Upon completing the course, email the password to [email protected].  The password submission deadline is Monday, January 25 at 10:00 AM. You will be entered to win prizes from Eaglecrest, Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, and Foggy Mountain Shop. Winners will be randomly selected and contacted by phone/email.


  • Leave beacons buried for other people and groups after you. Don’t dig them up!
  • If you encounter others in the search area ahead of you, give them time and space to complete the search.
  • Beacons will be in soft backpacks, probe responsibly and cover your tracks by side slipping.
  • Do not broadcast clues or hints. Let participants play the course for themselves.
  • Please don’t use other people’s maps. Get your own! The fee is $10 minimum, and it’s for a good cause.
