Pulled into Rubble creek TH today, about 3 dozen cars. Gentleman packing up his crampons (via slight language barrier) implied snow starting 3-ish km mark.
Alternatively, was able to drive my Subaru 5.3kms from the highway up Chance/Roe main, where I stopped as patchy snow was getting deep and sledders were loading. Was almost plowed on the way down by 3 parties (or 3 parts of the same group) of guys on mixed ATVs and trucks with no concept of courtesy, all of them (including the trucks) roosting rocks through the corners as I went by them. The vehicles they were staging from lower down had AB plates.... Really burns me, as I travel those roads on my dirt bike as well and it's yahoos like that that make the general public think we're all idiots. "That's how you lose access for everyone, guys!" Grrr.
