Snow Removal Policies

By Village of Valemount
on Nov 15, 2021


The Village has approximately 40 km of roadways and lanes that must be maintained. Our Public Works department does their best to clear these areas within 48 hours of a snowfall.

There are 4 ranked snow removal priorities:
  • Emergency Routes, including the main streets in the Village (5th Avenue, Hwy 5 frontage road and Main Street); 9th Avenue (between Gorse Street & Highway 5)
  • The streets by both the Secondary and Elementary Schools; Parking areas at the Fire Department, Service BC, Public Library, Community Services Building, Valemount Children’s Activity Society, and Village Office.
  • The remainder of the residential streets and the two alleys immediately to the North and South of 5th Avenue, between Birch and Dogwood Streets.
  • Residential alleys (only after all of the above have been cleared, sanded & salted)

Village property includes street easements. A street easement is the property between your property line (fence) and the road. The Village uses this property for snow storage when necessary. Please do not store vehicles or materials on Village easements; it is against Village Bylaws to do so.

Most municipalities DO NOT remove windrows. However, the Village of Valemount does make every effort to provide this service ONLY after the above 4 priorities have been completed.

We thank you for your patience during the busy winter season.
