Residents in the Eagle River area were asked to evacuate after the massive avalanche cut off 100 homes without power Thursday night.
The snow removal process is expected to take two weeks, “if conditions remain safe,” the OEM update said.
Authorities previously said the avalanche was about 60-80 feet deep and 100 feet wide.
Police said there were no reports of anyone trapped in the snow and no homes were damaged, CNN reported Friday, but they noted the snow was extremely unstable.
“Safety teams have assessed potential risks for reentry. However, significant risks are still in place until snow clearing operations are complete,” the OEM said Sunday.
“Risks will be assessed day by day until further notice,” OEM officials added.
Crews will begin removing snow Monday if conditions allow, emergency officials said.
