Snow and avalanche control closures coming to Highway 1 east of Revelstoke tomorrow

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Trans Canada Highway beginning tomorrow morning.

20-30 cm of snow is expected in Rogers Pass. The heaviest snow is expected Thursday afternoon and evening and will likely persist into Friday morning.

“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” the warning says. “Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.”
