I am thinking to hike July Mountain Snowshoe this Saturday, wondering how is the road current condition there(Juliet Creek FSR)?

The forecast shows rain or showers pretty much everywhere for Friday, but sunny weather Saturday and clouding up Sunday evening in the Interior. So, if you want to avoid rain, head inland.

Looks pretty nice forecast around Kamloops right now for instance.

I drove the Coquihalla highway last Sunday and there was no snow at highway elevation, so at least the bottom of the Juliet Creek road should be OK. There was a bit of snow on the connector towards Kelowna at around 1700m elevation.

Was up at July Mountain two weekends back. The fsr is pretty good actually up until the last 2k where you will need a 4 wheel drive or a high clearance truck at the very least to clear two larger waterbars. No alder bashing what so ever. Was cleared a year or so ago. You could always walk the extra 2k. Wouldn't take long. The forecast for the area of Brookmere which isn't to far off is for 6 hours of sun according to the weather network but last weekend they said 8 hours so we attempted Yak and found strong winds, cold temperatures, a little rain and snow with no visibility. At least until we got back to the vehicles when it of course cleared up around 3pm. Sooo you never know what your going to get in the Coquihalla area. Very variable there this time of year.


Hope this helps (:

Don't plan to go through Pemberton to get to the Interior this weekend. Lillooet River hit 1-in-100 flood stage. Much of the valley between Pemberton and Mt Currie is flooded.
