I saw in the AVTimes this morning that the Ministry has installed the Sutton Pass highway camera to compliment the one already on the Hump.

Here is the new camera on Sutton Pass. It points west towards Tofino/Ucluelet.

So I have added it to the “Webcams” page as one of the three featured cameras. I’ve put the Airport camera into a link amongst others on that page…

I also added another highlight in the Environment Canada forecasts for the word flurries and snow. You’ll notice one of those in there for tonight. 🙂

Just a chance, no panic required. 🙂

  1. It is about time! I drove over last march when drive BC said some slippery sections… Slippery? GEEZ! It was snowy craziness from the Westbay all the way to Kennedy Lake! I could barely see the front of my car past Sutton Pass. There were vehicles off everywhere, and it was the first time ever that I was truly scared driving in the snow.
    And here’s my fingers crossed for flurries tonight!

  2. That camera has been there for almost a year. It was installed just after the ambulance tumbled into Kennedy Lake. But for some reason, it took highways officials this long to get the images posted on the DriveBC site. Nice to see, though. I’ve updated my website’s cam page to include it.

  3. Chris, no doubt. And no reason why not either. The Sutton cam is battery/solar powered, so it must have the juice for night ops. The Hump cam could be set up the same as well – just add more batteries, and maybe another panel.
