The pass, in Glacier National Park between Revelstoke and Golden, closed at 1 pm and reopened almost 14-hours later.

The area received more than 8″ of snow over the weekend, and the slide comes at a time when Avalanche Canada has stopped releasing their bulletins. Current snowpack in the area is 79″.
