Want to see how YVR prepares for a blustery day like today? Check out this snow operations video that Live@YVR’s Jaeger Mah made last year while he was living at the airport.
I signed up for a Wildlife Management lunch and learn with the intent of experiencing a part of the airport I rarely get to see. I went with few expectations, but gained more than I could have imagined.
Keeping the runways and aprons at YVR clean and clear during snowstorms is a big job. Whenever it snows at YVR, we can deploy an army of up to 80 trucks and machines to de-ice, blow, plow, melt and sweep allowing aircraft to safely take off and land.
