Huge avalanche on camera

The provincial government has published some spectacular footage of recent avalanche control work in Northwest B.C.

The video posted by BC Transportation and Infrastructure shows a triggered avalanche along Highway 37A near Stewart, just east of the Alaska panhandle.

“If you weren't an avalanche nerd before seeing this — welcome to the club,” said the post.

Provincial avalanche technicians are stationed at eight key locations across B.C., keeping a close eye on weather and snowpack conditions in 62 avalanche prone areas.
