There are tons of blueberries and a bear on the Hollyburn Mountain trail.
And no e-cigarettes or pot smoking in the park now either.

Default Duffey Lake back-road snow?

The highway camera shows no snow on the Duffey lake road.

Does anyone know if there is snow up in the back end of van Horlick, Blowdown or Downton Creek FSRs?

Did a quick jaunt up to Wedgemount Lake on Nov 10, 2019. Impressively no snow until the last 500 meters, but was quite icy on the final climb. 3 hours round trip thanks to the good conditions and was back to my place by 11 in Whistler.

That's quite slippery without spikes at least coming down. 3hrs return is awfully fast, most ppl will need 2 1/2 - 3hrs just to get up.
Must come back there one summer for overnight. Did Cook as day hike, but would like to do Weart as well.

Just realized looking at timestamps of these pics I haven't been there since 2010. Where did the time go??

Anyone know if they have lifted the restrictions on Garibaldi Lake/Taylor Meadows... the website does not mention.

[Edited: never mind... just noticed the Trail Report PDF... as of Nov 9 - shows OPEN.]

Default Snow in Elfin lakes yet?

You can always use BC parks last updates for trails condition web site (see the following link).

I have done Elfin lakes throughout the year, I bet there is a thick snow bed starting around red heather hut. You should pack snow shoes and be prepared to stay over night in case of bad weather.

Road to Tet very rough. 40 water bars in road. Need high clearance vehicles. Many potholes also. Was going to try to plow road again but Unimog plow can’t make it through water bars. Plow digs in and does damage to cutting edges.
So until MOF allows water bars to be filled it I won’t plow it
