This film describes the efforts of a mobile avalanche-control team to keep open the important Rogers Pass, situated in Glacier National Park, British Columbia. The film describes, in a visually exciting and dramatic way, the range of methods employed by the team: shear tests, snow profiles, blast tests. The climax of the film comes during a quasi-military operation involving the deliberate triggering of avalanches.
