Default Upper lillooet FSR conditions?

Has anyone been up past the Hurley road towards North Creek or Salal Creek.

Is the road driveable or still snowbound?

Is the snow off the lower roads at North Creek?

The Hurley FSR snow amounts will be assessed again later today but according to http://isurvivedthehurley.com/, they plan on beginning snow clearing on Tuesday, May 23 with a likely opening sometime in the week of May 29. I'd suggest checking that site for updates.

Hope that helps.

What about the lower road main up the Lillooet River valley? Has anyone been up that way towards Keyhole?

Keyhole is closed due to bears. Lillooet had several avalanches cross the road. I believe the hydro project has dug through them. Lillooet South is closed for several weeks due to a large rockslide near South creek

You should make backup plans just in case. Another round of large avalanches with debris reaching valley bottom is possible with the projected warming over the next few days and the 30 cm of new snow that the last storm dropped at elevation.. http://www.avalanche.ca/blogs/spring...ottom-20170504

The Bottom Line: We expect more widespread loose wet snow avalanches on Thursday [May 18]. Very dangerous avalanche conditions are expected and travel in avalanche terrain is not recommended in areas with heavy recent storm snow. Careful snowpack evaluation and cautious routefinding will be essential in other areas.

Great, do you have any other suggestions for that area? I was planning to go up for the long weekend. I have never been past the Hurley turnoff.

Go past Mt. Currie, to D'Arcy, take the highline road to Shalath, up and over Mission Ridge to Tergazi Dam and carpenter lake and out to Lillooet.
