Snow Wars: Canada's Fight Against Deadly Avalanches

Always fortunate finding free feature-length full HD documentaries that are both informative and highly entertaining to the skiing public. This 2013 film explores the ongoing war in the Canadian Rockies, the battle against dangerous snow. The plot summary is quite well written and epic:

“On land and in the air, Canadians do battle against massive amounts of snow, threatening the infrastructure and the lives of their people. The threat: Avalanches. Unstoppable, rumbling walls of thick snow, 300 kmh fast, tossing even huge boulders down the mountainsides like gravel. Clouds dense enough to suffocate any living creature within seconds. Blasts able to snap fully grown trees like twigs, burying and destroying everything in their way. Down below: Highway No. 1, BC, Canada. 16, 000 vehicles a day, the main artery between the coast and the interior of the country. A handful of men and women risking their lives to protect the streets, railways and public against mother nature’s forces.”
