I can't think of anything that could be used to plow snow that tall with it being smooth, straight walls the whole way. That would be a pretty massive machine. Just imagine the weight of all that snow and the horsepower you'd need to push it.

I have no idea how they plowed that..I live in Minnesota and were known for our snow but thats a unreal amount of snow!

maybe this image is the product of them slowly removing layers (feet by feet) of the snow. like okamitengu said.. they get that much in a year.

That's really amazing to me. I would be scared of it not being able to hold stable, and coming down on top of me. Anyways, I did a search with Tineye, and found another article with the same pic as in your OP, but also another of the same road.

There is a main road through the mountains that is literally buried in snow during the winter. It is closed during winter, but re opened during the spring after a snow plow digs through an average of 17 meters (56 ft.) of snow to uncover it.

Another pic to compare. From what I can tell, he is saying this is the same road/same area.

Compare that to what it looked like when we were there:

I could be wrong, but to me it looks far too smooth to have done it a little at a time, which makes me thinking theres some shopping going on here *tinfoil hat* I dunno, I'm probably just wrong. It's late


Edit: that second pic looks a lot less smooth, so yeah I'm probably wrong

Maybe that's not snow. It could be some kind of mineral.

Snow banks here are about 6' high and that's just from the last storm.. I'm not surprised that's real at all.

c'mon guys I agree it's an Its amamazing picture but: the road is clear its snows 2f eet you plow the road, it snows two more feet you plow the road it; snows 4 feet you plow the roads the down presure causes the walls to turn to ice like a glacier it snows 4more feet you plow.; I t doesn't completely melt be cause of the altitude of the pass next year more snowlayers and more ice..
just sayin... thanks for the pic

cheers..

ah a video postd "holy-bawlllz" that is some kind of heavy duty equipment...guess it is done at once....
