Avalanche Control Coquihalla Feb 25-26 (CANCELED)
*****NOTE The Below Planned Avalanche Control Has Been Canceled*******
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will be doing explosives control tomorrow (Monday)and/or Tuesday. Please do not ski/snowshoe in slopes facing the highway. Examples of some, but not all areas that we may do control in are: Yak/Nak/Thar area, Markor N slide path (Lunch Run) and Two Bears.
Please do not park at the Zopkios sand pit. If you are planning to be in the Coquihalla, areas that we will not be doing control in are Zoa, Coq Lakes Ridge (Toll Booth), Ottomite/Iago and Needle Ridge. When you return to your vehicle, please take the time to ensure the road is open. If you don't see a transport truck or vehicle go by in a five minute span, the road is still closed, stay in the parking area until you see traffic resume.
Conditions are touchy out there, be careful.
Thank you for your cooperation.
