Right in the heart of the mountain range and covering an area of 1,600 km, they have to be ready to intervene in situations as perilous as they are varied. But their missions would be impossible without the help of the Californian Department of Transport.

At the head of the local branch is Pete Labrance. He is responsible for closing the roads in the event of heavy snow. Despite the extreme conditions, there are those who will brave any danger to get as close as possible to dangerous areas. These are the storm chasers.
