Hurley Road Avalanche Zone

Posted by on October 20, 2011

Have you ever wondered why plowing on the Hurley Road is delayed on big snow years?  The avalanche danger from the Green Mountain ridge is the main reason.  This photo from shows the avalanche paths that on some years, has covered the Hurley Road.  The avalanche path area starts at the Green Mt branch (8km from Gold Bridge)  to the 12km mark, just before the East Hurley fork.  Thanks to Frank W Baumann for the aerial photograph of the avalanche zone.
