Yukon's Klondike Highway between Carcross and the U.S. border is now open.

The highway had been closed due to debris from an avalanche near the B.C. border Thursday morning.

Clint Ireland, with the Department of Highways and Public Works, says snow was cleared by Thursday afternoon, but the highway remained closed last night as consultants conducted a survey to determine the risk. 

Ireland says there is lots of snow, a south wind and it's quite warm, which are ideal avalanche conditions.
