Before moving to Canada, avalanches were only something we read about in books or saw in the movies. Within months of moving here we were seeing these signs, a very REAL reminder of what winter in Canada can inflict.
Snow began falling that first winter and it seemed almost instantaneously avalanche warnings were being given over the radio. And not just for those out on their snow-mobiles or skiing, roads we’d only recently driven over had disappeared.
A good reminder to always be vigilant when it comes to the weather.
