On August 6, 2010 a massive lahar (a type of mudflow or debris flow) cascaded down from Capricorn Glacier at a speed of 30 m per second. Experts initially estimated that the volume of debris totaled 40,000,000 m3, which would make it the second largest landslide on record in Canadian history. However, the Meager landslide was later estimated to be more than 48,500,000 m3, which would make it the largest of all time in Canada. The 2010 landslide at Mount Meager was 300 m wide and 2 km long.
