Over 100cm in 24 hours

Can too much snow be a bad thing?

Mount Washington Alpine Resort received over 105 centimetres of snow in the past 24 hours, closing the resort.

“The resort is closed,” stated the website on Sunday. “Due to heavy snowfall and high avalanche danger we will not be opening today."

Overnight 80 cm fell on the mountain located on Vancouver Island.

“We advise that guests do not travel the road up,” stated the resort.

DriveBC said Mount Washington Road is closed in both directions due to winter highway maintenance. Estimated time of opening is 5 p.m.
