Snow storm forecast for Revelstoke

Up to 20 cm expected today

A frontal system is expected to bring up to 20 centimetres of snow to the Trans-Canada Highway between Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass this afternoon.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning early this morning.

The snow is expected to ease later tonight.

The snow is likely to affect the search for a missing Edmonton-bound plane north of Revelstoke. Pilot Dominic Neron, 28, and his passenger, Ashely Bourgeault were reported missing Saturday evening after departing from the Penticton Airport.

Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre is heading up the search and spokesperson Katelyn Moores says the search today is focused about 18 kilometres north of Revelstoke.

The area is mountainous and is densely forested.

Two helicopters, a Buffalo aircraft, and two Parks Canada ground crews are searching the area for the missing plane.

The forecast snow may make the search more difficult for crews, but Moores told Black Press that she did not believe it would stop the search.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is likely to be pleased with the potential for snow.

The resort, which is scheduled to open in just four days on Dec. 2, has received two centimetres in the last 24 hours and 37 cm over the last week. The base depth (at 1,950m) is currently at 100 cm.
