A high avalanche danger has shut down the Trans-Canada Highway near the B.C./Alberta border.
The closures came into effect following a winter storm that blew through the region.
DriveBC is reporting that Hwy. 1 will remain closed between Golden and the Alberta border until at least noon Friday. An update is expected Friday morning.
Hwy. 1 is also closed between Revelstoke and Golden as crews clear the road of avalanche deposits in Glacier National Park. That section of the highway is expected to open between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
There goes the army towing the canon for shooting down avalanches, and it's starting to snow harder again 😁❄❄❄ pic.twitter.com/9bsp31h1FT— One Human (@LaoneHuman) February 8, 2018
