Abstract: On February 8, 1984, two mountaineers were killed in an avalanche on Mount Katahdin. An analysis of terrain and climatic variables associated with the avalanche hazard in Baxter State Park indicates that, while the hazard is limited in its aerial extent it is compounded by a lack of preparedness and weather system patterns.
