I went there on Dec 17, 2020 and can report that both the North Saskatchewan and the Alexandra rivers are frozen over. The snow averaged about 1 m deep. Snowshoers and skiers can depart from the Sunset Pass trailhead to access the campsite at Terrace Creek (approx 10 km). It should be possible to follow the Alexandra along the river bottom to the confluence of the Castleguard River.

Very useful info. Might head there later on when days get a bit longer.

How far did you go?
