Vancouver Olympic Sea to Sky Highway closed by rockslide

The Sea-to-sky highway is the main route from Vancouver to the Whistler ski resort, closed for the rest of the weekend.

The Transportation minister says that a 75 metre section of the highway covered by the giant VW-sized boulders.

They were blasting through the weekend to break up the rocks so they can move them out.

Amazingly, looks like no one was killed.

Description from the YT poster, the local media org:
"The road to Whistler just got longer.
Transportation minister Kevin Falcon said the Sea-to-Sky highway could be closed for up to five days following a massive rockslide that buried a stretch of road north of Porteau Cove under a pile of Volkswagen-sized boulders.
