Slide closes highway through Sunday
A massive rock slide hit the Sea-to-Sky Highway at Porteau Cove late Tuesday night, between Furry Creek Bridge and Lions Bay.
Read more about it in The Province and also on CTV's website.
What the reports don't mention is that the slide also landed on the train tracks that are used by the Whistler Mountaineer. It travels daily between North Vancouver and Whistler.
According to an article in The Province, it's going to take at least five days to clear the rubble, with Sunday being the projected reopening.
