Logging operations have been shut down due to the hot and dry weather however, Aspen Planers will be log hauling on the Gold Bridge side of the Hurley starting Tuesday 25 July. They will be running 10 trucks per day from 17km on the Bridge Main and down Road 40 to Lillooet. Starting loading at 4am and loading will be finished by 10am so expect to see the last truck on the Hurley around noon each day. Expect heavy dust if you see a truck and drive with caution.
The Whistler Ironman biking event is held on the Pemberton Meadows Road and the road will be closed on Sunday July 30 from 8.45am to 4.30pm. More information at this link: Ironman Road Closures

Fire Danger is extreme and there is a total fire ban which means no campfires, fireworks, bear bangers and no tossing cigarette butts! Be aware that a hot exhaust from your vehicle, dirt bike or ATV can ignite dry grass easily so keep that in mind when you pull over. If you see smoke or a wildfire, report it by calling 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell when you get back into cell range mid way in the Pemberton Meadows. Information about fires can be found at the BC Wildfire website.
