Cougar Corner Slide Area - the largest snow net project outside of the Alps

14 December 2016

In December 2015, Parks Canada invited contractors to bid on installing approximately 2000 linear meters of snow nets in Glacier National Park, situated in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. In winter, avalanches slide directly on to the TransCanada Highway disrupting traffic flows. This highway runs right through the national park and is a crucial component for the east-west transport in Canada. Find more information and pictures of this breathtaking project on our database.

Special debris flow barriers with snow retaining capacity were installed amongst SPIDER® Avalanche barriers
Trans-Canada Highway directly below the SPIDER® Avalanche.
