Earlier today, BC Transportation and Infrastructure conducted avalanche control in Three Valley Gap. The video was posted online, allowing viewers to get a visual on why avalanche closures and controls are necessary as the avalanche crosses the highway and into the water.
The website https://www.tranbc.ca/2013/01/19/photo-blog-avalanche-control-over-bc-highways/, notes that the avalanche technicians employed by the province trigger blasts with sound Gazex Exploders and Daisy Bells.
