Watch for the sign to drive to Hope Slide that is next to the main road. The drive to the slide from the main road is short. We were alone in this place and it is realy impressive to read the board with the history and imagine what must have happened when the slide cam down on people. This is... More

In the 50+ years since this happened, they have made a Very Nice memorial to those killed, the devastation to the valley, and an Educational stopping point on the drive through the valley . . Well worth the few minutes it takes to understand the "Power of the Mountains"!

I have driven by many many times but finally stopped in. Pretty simple display but informative and amazing to read about the slide and how big it was and the impact on the area. Well worth the visit

We were driving by and thought we would stop in... Wow to see all that rock that had fallen from the mountain is amazing... The area is massive.. There are a couple picnic tables and pit toilets

While it is an awe inspiring site you feel the impact of the great losses because of this monumental slide. While there, I looked over the left side and not 20 feet from me were a pair of marmots busy building their nest under a huge rock. Proof that life goes on in spite of tragedy.

The evidence of all the tonnage of rock rubble now in the valley indicates the sheer power of nature involved. Sorry to read about the 4 casualties that incurred.

The largest rock slide in the history of British Columbia. Millions of tons of earth slid down and blocked a highway and obliterated a lake. Worth a quick stop if you are passing by this area.

As my Uncle is named as one of the people still missing in this slide, I stop every time we go by. It shows how mother nature can change things in a matter of a minute. A great road side stop to take in the history of BC and have your lunch while taking in the scenery.
