Double Avalanche: All the Way

Sometimes, the sheer power and raw beauty of nature (with a little help from us, for safety’s sake) are so overwhelming, you just have to sit back and say, “Like, wow man. Double avalanche! All the way!” (much a like a certain popular rainbow video)

That’s exactly what we did when we received this footage from our avalanche team after they finished up some control work on Highway 3 near Fernie.

Pretty amazing stuff, eh?

    • Hmmmm, strange. Sometimes a certain browser, such as Internet Explorer, can give folks trouble viewing embedded videos. We’ve swapped out the link – can you see it now?

        • Thanks! As this is a Youtube embedded clip, I’m not sure what more we can do to fix it other than hosting the video on wordpress, Unfortunately that’s not an option as it will slow the site.
