Nearly 100 households in the Cecil Lake and Goodlow areas could be without power for up to a week.
A landslide in the area damaged a BC Hydro transmission line into the area causing a power outage on Monday, the utility said.
BC Hydro says it is monitoring the situation, although there is no timeline on when power will be restored. Initial estimates suggest between five to seven days.
"Before any work can begin, a geotechnical assessment needs to be completed," spokesman Dave Conway said.
"A geotech is scheduled to have a first look at the site by helicopter tonight. Once the area is cleared safe to work, our crews will assess the damage and restoration work will begin.
"We understand how inconvenient an extended outage can be, and we appreciate our customers’ patience as we work to safely restore the power."
The Goodlow Transfer Station is closed, and is being equipped with a generator to continue regular operations starting Wednesday.
