Thanks Sandy

Default Current conditions in South Chilcotin PP?

Anybody know what the snow levels are like in South Chilcotin PP? Say in the High Trail/Camel Pass area?

Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit.

Default Bugs are out on Burke

Just a quick FYI... was doing some trail work on Burke and had to suffer the little &@%#! black flies... this just started, I was up there only 3 days ago and nothing,... I imagine you are ok on a bike, just don't stop. Might not be too pleasant hiking.

Anyone else have any comments about bugs in other locations recently?

Here are recent conditions from the last couple of weeks:
Hurley Road is open. Limited pull-outs plowed out, 1 or 2 cars would get in near the Semaphore Lakes trail. Snow is much less than previous years I have skied up there.
Semaphore Lakes trail - snow covered from the start and easily skied. The snowbridges over Railroad Creek are quickly melting. I have never been up in summer so don't know if there is a foot bridge, but soon the creek may need to be forded.
Heading up to Grouty Peak - it is a fairly burly ski up/down to the ridge right now and there is very little snow on the ridge to Grouty.
Branch 12 should be completely snow clear by now as it was only patchy two weeks ago.
Tenquille Lakes trail is still snow covered from the start but will be melting quick.
Owl Road is drivable quite high except at least 2 culverts are blocked and have washed the road away.
Snow conditions in general are feeling very spring/summerish with suncups at lower elevations and corn skiing needs to be timed. Fairly well set up for walking but go early as there has been limited overnight freezes.
Anywhere that the snow is thin is isothermal and bottomless.
Cornice falls are frequent and large but we did not see them trigger anything deeper.

Mountain bikes and bugs are out in force!

Out of Cypress, the track to St Marks is snow free except for crossing avalanche paths below Mt Strachan and in the pass at the base of Christmas gully. Still snow up Christmas gully.

Sullys Hangout in Lynn Canyon has a sign saying Bear in Area, but everyone is ignoring it and climbing there. Quite a popular little crag. We saw no sign of bear.

Does anyone have an update for conditions for the Howe Sound Crest Trail? How far can I get before hitting snow? Thanks.

When would the snow disappear from the Rampart Ponds area of Garibaldi Park (or Elfin Lakes)? I'm planning a trip up there soon but I don't want to wait too long in case the dry weather shuts down access so I'd rather go sooner than later, but I don't want to get caught by late snow.

Default Hope Creek FSR conditions?

Does anyone know the recent conditions of the Hope Creek FSR off the Hurley, as the access to Beaujolais Peak, etc? We have an ATV but would rather not bring it if it's not necessary.

Not recent, but we drove it back in October. Recent logging means the Hope Creek FSR is in better shape than the Hurley. The turnoff to Beaujolais/Canine/etc will be bushier, but this road doesn't get much water runoff so it should still be okay too.

Hope Mountain FSR near Hope is in alright shape to the parking lot for Hope and Wells Pk THs. You'll need 4wd with moderately high clearance for some washed out boulder crawling sections (XL7 made it but idk if a stock Subaru Forester would) and there is one huge boulder in the middle of the road that you have to drive partly into the bushes to get around.

Went up last summer and the bridge had been removed there was a large digger there out, looked like they we going to put a new one in, maybe check with the logging company.

Thanks but I was referring to the one off the Hurley near Pemberton!
