Pemberton Landslide

Just when you thought the avalanche season was over…

This was the second largest landslide in Canadian history – deemed a once in 2000 years event.

Over 40 million cubic meters of mountainside moved over two kilometers, blocking the lillooet river and Meager creek – which in turn threatened the whole Pemberton valley. Fortunately the water cut a new path… however with all that debris upstream you gotta wonder what’s going to happen this fall. Check it out.
