Avalanche Awareness
General Information

The Government of British Columbia’s avalanche safety program keeps roads and travellers safe. Staff constantly monitor conditions, and if the risk of an avalanche is too great, they will close and evacuate the highway until the danger is past. They begin regularly assessing avalanche hazard in the mountain snowpack from November through May in British Columbia.
