Wow, what a huge slide – How a photo says it all…

BCTV Kootenays Facebook Page lit up this week when a photo of an unknown TransBC worker stood beside a huge avalanche deposit on Kootenay Pass.

The photo caption reads: Huge snow deposits from TransBC avalanche control work Wednesday morning Jan 10, 2018 on Highway 3 at Kootenay Pass . Apologies for extended delays as we clean this up…
