Abstract

A glacier-initiated land–ice slide occurred on the southwestern side of Devastation Glacier near Pylon Peak in the Coast Mountain Range, British Columbia, in July 1975. An estimated 2.5 × 106 m3 of ice and about 26 × 106 m3 of debris descended 1150 m over a distance of 6.5 km and blocked Meager Creek, forming a small lake. The slide claimed the lives of four people on a sand bar at Meager Creek.
