Loads of Snow at Roger's Pass

Lots of snow on the roof of this building at Roger's Pass. Roger's Pass in the Selkirk Mountains of BC is famous for the quantities of snowfall. This building is closed in winter for obvious reasons. This window is on the second floor showing here that the ground floor is completely buried.

    Peter Sundstrom I don't know the name of the building, but the front of it is a "Gas Plus" service station which is immediately south (Revelstoke side) of the visitor center.

    I think it is the Glacier Park Lodge, which used to be a Best Western.

    Oh yeah, I forgot there was a gas station there too

    CutOffTies You're right... Glacier Park Lodge used to be a Best Western and it's on the other side of the visitor center -- just north. Thanks for the link!

    It's good to know that winter was very busy SOMEWHERE in North America! Reminds me of my days at Michigan Tech in the UP of Michigan.

    That's an insane amount of snow and a great shot! I too am going to need to check that our one day!

    Ah, found it.

    Here's a pic of it in summer. Gives you a really good idea of how far the snow comes up.
