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?
