Update 10th at 6am – 20cm of wet snow at Gun Lake over night. Reports of a vehicle stuck on the Pemberton side and heavy wet snow with slippery conditions. Haven’t heard if anyone has made it over and it is most likely closed to vehicle traffic now.
As of yesterday, both logging companies have finished work on the Hurley for the winter and no more plowing will be done. Ministry officials have notified us that the Hurley will remain closed to snowmobile traffic until vehicles are no longer driving it. As long as there are vehicle tracks on the road, snowmobiles are prohibited. Snow is falling in the Bridge River Valley today so expect snowy conditions on the road. If you drive the Hurley please send your updates to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep people informed. Update 9am: 6cm of wet snow fell at Gun Lake this morning.
If you choose to drive the Hurley at this time of the year, be prepared to experience all kinds of weather and winter driving conditions. Winter driving skills, 4 x4, chains and good snow tires are essential for travel. A survival/safety kit are good things to carry in your truck. Conditions can change fast at anytime up there with the fluctuating temperatures & weather.
