To prepare for this outage and protect your equipment from damage, please turn off all sensitive equipment.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and will restore power as soon as we can.

Success at the Lardeau bluffs today:

….. the Avalanche folks had success at the Lardeau bluffs blasting the snow down…(for those who haven’t been here in winter before and wondered what those 14 booms were about…):

“Hi folks, good results with avalanche control at the Bluffs this afternoon. Two lanes of highway open now.

Keep you posted through the warm wet week ahead.

Thanks to Kootenay Valley helicopters for some good flying today and to YRB for cleaning up our mess.”
