Snow Wall

If you've ever had to clear snow from your driveway, then you'd surely appreciate this: a 65-foot (20 m) snow wall in the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in Japan.

65 feet seems exaggerated.

Maybe there's a point someone in the corridor where it is 65 feet deep, but none of those pictures seem like it comes close.

From the photo link...
"The famous “Snow Walls” are formed by expelling this heavy snow..."

Of course, but HOW? I've never seen a snowplow that could cut perfectly vertical walls through that depth of snow.

Almost looks like it was melted by a laser from orbit.
