AbstractThe Division of Building Research of the National Research Council of Canada is engaged in a study of snow avalanches at Rogers Pass where the Trans Canada Highway crosses the Selkirk Mountain range in British Columbia. The location was chosen because numerous avalanches reach the valley every winter and the control of them is an important part of the maintenance of the highway.
