Kootenay Pass reopens

UPDATE: 10 a.m.

Kootenay Pass has now been reopened after it was temporarily closed earlier Saturday morning for snow deposit removal. 

DriveBC is warning travellers Highway 3 is covered in compact snow and there are slippery sections throughout the pass. 


ORIGINAL: 6:30 a.m.

Highway 3 is currently closed at Kootenay Pass, due to high avalanche hazard.

The route is closed between the west and east avalanche gate, DriveBC reports, and also between the west gate and Creston Road. 

The latter section is expected to reopen at 9 a.m.

At that time, more information is expected on the pass.

Motorists can use Highway 3A from Castlegar to Creston via the Kootenay Lake Ferry.
