A massive, unexplored cave that’s likely among the country’s largest has been discovered in a remote valley in B.C.’s Wells Gray Provincial Park. This in near Fernie BC.
The cave was initially spotted in April by a Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations helicopter team doing a caribou count.

In fact, the cave is 100 meters by 60 meters — virtually the exact dimensions of a CFL football field.
It’s also extremely deep, extending more than 100 meters underground, with the first 80 meters of that being a straight vertical drop.
Perhaps, before long, it will be added to this book on the top 100 Caves in Canada:
