Dec 7 update

Thanks to Aidan and Ben for the latest update and photo. Got over the Hurley around 11pm. Took about 2.5 hours with chain install. Deep snow starting at Semaphore lake trail head. Slippery on the decline over the summit. Truck with clearance, two-sets of chains and 4×4 essential. Might be the last run of the year unless we decide to chance it on the way home.

Dec 6 update

With the new snowfall last night, driving the Hurley is not recommended!  Sleds are already hitting the summit. Thanks to Carson for sending the photos to www.southchilcotin.ca

Thanks to Heather Roberts for another update.  Came from Bralorne to Pemberton over the pass around 4:00pm on Dec 5. Better than last night but still pretty spicy. Chains still mandatory and tricky no stoping zones still in effect. 5 inches of new snow in Pemberton this morning and driving the Hurley is probably not going to work out too well, really know what your getting into, with a strong rescue team ready to get your truck outta there.

Dec 4 Update

Thanks to Heather Roberts for the latest update, sounds like things are getting sketchy up there!

Hurley tonight (Wed Dec 04), over the pass around 8-9pm. I came from Pemberton to Bralorne.  It went from 3cm to 45cm in like 150ft. 3kms of super slippery underneath, deeper than expected, powdery snow. It was sketchy even with chains and 4×4 truck. I absolutely did not stop to take a picture! If you are going be sure to have a rescue person planned, definitely chains, 4×4 truck, and the regular winter preparedness. I have driven it with chains and more snow than that before but it was surprisingly tricky tonight.

Around Hope Creek I had the chains off and was relaxed at moderate speed and BOOM….. a black ice 270 spin out added to the evening.

Chain up early, drive slow. Watch out.

It’s definitely proceed with caution and preparedness time, not sure how many more days we will get.

Nice to meet Bret, Ashley, and the Pemberton trucks man,  thanks for breaking trail!  I made it to my goodnight beer and warm bed without an epic – but it was close. ?

November 21 Update

NOV 21 Update -  Looks like conditions haven’t changed from the 19th and there is still snow at the summit. Thanks to Ted and Tish Rayner for the latest update and photos. Came northbound today. Washboard up to the summit, snow cover started at 4200 feet to the summit with 6 inches of snow but bare tracks on the road. From summit down to Gold Bridge road was in better shape with little washboard.

Thanks to Alan Simmons for the Nov 19 update and photo.  About 6 inches of snow at summit but tracks almost to the ground.   Lots of washboard.

Nov 16 Update

Thanks to Adam for the latest update. Drove the Hurley today (Nov 16). Snow was falling at the top, accumulating on the road for about 2km. Otherwise, Pemberton side was a bit bumpy but the descent into BRV was pretty smooth.

Nov 4 Update

Thanks to Paul for the update from Nov 5 – HI, I just went over yesterday, it’s the Hurley. Anybody who has driven that road over the last 20yrs knows or should know what to expect. Its always rough and always full of holes. The only difference is how many holes. Bone dry, clear of snow and any obstruction and yes very rough as usual. Take care and appreciate all the updates. I didn’t think a photo was warranted.

Went over the Hurley, north on Nov. 2 and south on Dec.3. No problems with snow or ice, frequently as rough as a badger’s butt.

We’ve had a few comments lately to say the updates are misleading and the road is not in great shape and its actually rough and bumpy.  This is site is user updated and people have different views and standards on what they think is good or not. If you don’t agree with the update, send us a different update with your views and we will post that too.  We received a new update from an anonymous driver today with their view of how the road conditions are and we have never heard it called rough as a badger’s butt before!  Thanks for the update mystery driver!
