Default Grouse Grind trail update Nov 5, 2009

Received this in an email from Metro Vancouver regarding the Grouse Grind:

The Grouse Grind is now closed until further notice.
This closure is due to high winds and forecasted heavy rainfall.
We will continue to monitor weather & trail conditions and update when trail status changes
.


Cheers

When Metro Vancouver closes the Grouse Grind they usually include the BCMC and adjacent trails in their closure.

That's quite the graphic.....
From innocuous to entertaining to strangely graphic.

Is there another way to get up to crown or goat if the bcmc trail is closed? Btw, does anyone know if there's enough snow on crown/goat to warrant snowshoes?

Yes. Just walk around the locked gate and hike up whichever trail you want. Read this before you go: http://avalanche.ca/cac/bulletins/ca...s/north-shore/

Edited to add:

Grouse Grind is the steepest and most avalanche prone trail. Trails further east (BCMC, Larsen, etc) are safer.
