AbstractThe Trans-Canada Highway through Glacier National Park, British Columbia, was designed and constructed by the Federal Department of Public Works. Because the highway would have to cross numerous avalanche paths, the Department began, as early as 1953, preliminary observations on the snow cover, weather and avalanche conditions that would be encountered and in the winter of 1955-1956, established a regular observation program to provide the information required for the specification of the avalanche defences.
