Highway 1 reopened in both directions between Revelstoke and Golden, B.C., Thursday afternoon.

The highway was closed Wednesday due to a high avalanche hazard as the area was hit by a sizable snowfall that some estimated to be over 40 centimetres in a little over 12 hours time.

The highway was still closed at 8 a.m. Thursday, but a few hours later, the westbound lanes were opened, followed shortly after noon by eastbound lanes.

“Continue to expect winter driving conditions in the area,” @DriveBC said on X.
