Tuesday May 28, 2024 at 2:40 p.m., the snowy cornice of the Col du Glandon vanished, under the effect of explosives set up by the Mountain Interventions and Works Company (Citem), based in Saint-Jean -de-Maurienne. This operation had been prepared with the expertise of a snow specialist. This artificial preventive triggering of avalanches aims to ensure the security of departmental road 927 in the Col du Glandon sector, on the Maurienne valley side, before the intervention of the Department’s snow removal teams.

Last year, it was not necessary to mine the cornice which overlooks the road, and this year, the operation was not on the scale of that of 2022. It nevertheless remains spectacular.

The reopening date of the Col du Glandon, between the Villards valley and the Eau-d’Olle valley (in Isère), initially scheduled for May 31, is not confirmed. It also depends on the progress of work on the road, on the Isère side.

Two other passes will open

This Thursday, May 30 at 10:30 a.m., the Petit Saint-Bernard pass (RD 1 090), commune of Séez, will be reopened to traffic for the summer season. The next day, May 31 at 12 p.m., it will be the same for the Col de la Madeleine (RD 213), located in Saint-François-Longchamp.
