Default Smoke Show

Hi all,

For those of you heading out on the weekend, I'd love some beta on the views or lack thereof due to smoke etc. I'm planning on taking a friend out for a couple nights at tenquille, garibaldi, eaton lake, or ? If you could post here by sunday night if youbtravelled into those areas, It'd be much appreciated.thanks

I'm hoping to do a hike on highway 99 between West Van and Squamish on Saturday and would also appreciate any info.

thecamel: My info is old but last Sunday when there was smoke just about everywhere from Pemberton to Vancouver, the air was clear on the Hurley, just 26km from the Boulder Creek fire (although we could see the smoke in the distance and we could tell that we were close to the source.) I wouldn't be surprised if that has changed since it would take only a subtle shift in wind to completely smoke it out.

Family was out in Manning 2 days ago so on Wednesday it looked decent with long distance views, Saw Michelle was on Frosty yesterday so that would be Thursday saw blue sky in the pictures so it looked good.


Doug was on Edge Peak yesterday socked in smoke with what looked like no views from the picture I saw on facebook , so that should give an idea of smoke boundaries as for heading East. The whack and farther should be okay?



Can't comment on North so I won't .

Decently clear of smoke in Whistler today, albeit hazy. Could see from Function out to Tricouni & Fee, but it was steadily greyer the further out you look. I have buddies that went to Silverstar and they said you drive up and out of the smoke/haze as you climb Cayoosh, and it's clear north of Joffre. I would think Rohr/Marriott, Cerise, Blowdown or Downton would be OK

Any beta on the Coquihalla Summit area would also be greatly appreciated!

Air quality in the Hope area is much better today although I headed up to Manning again this morning for my run. I think Eaton would be okay, especially if things keep improving...

If I don't try, I've already failed.

I was up at Needle Peak yesterday and there were no visibility issues - once the clouds had cleared

According to the numbers, it's much better everywhere right now.

I could not smell any smoke on Mt. Brunswick on Saturday and it was raining.

Spent the weekend at Elfin including a day trip towards Opal Cone. A bit of haze on the hike in on Friday night but by about 9pm the clouds rolled in and stayed there - no smoke at all the rest of the weekend, just lots and lots of fog and rain. The haze we had on Friday was really minor compared to what we had earlier in the week.
