AvyBrains | | AvalancheAvalanche

After Rogers Pass was pummelled with snow over the weekend, crews blasted areas of Highway 1 Tuesday, bringing down a large avalanche.

Highway 1 was closed between Canyon Hot Springs and the western border of Glacier National Park between 10 am and noon while bombing from a helicopter was used to knock down heavy layers of snow.

BC’s Ministry of Transportation posted a video to Twitter of one of the avalanches triggered Tuesday, near the Lanark snowshed. The snowshed is near the western border of Glacier National Park.

“Sure makes the Trans-Canada Highway look small, doesn’t it?” the ministry posted.

Canadian Armed Forces members have been conducting avalanche control in the area since 1961.
