Hurley Closed

Posted by on December 2, 2018

Dec 12. After all the recent snow, the Hurley is closed to vehicle traffic for the winter.

Update from Dec 11: Crossed Hurley summit at about 2:30 today. Moose was on other side. It was -3 and snowing at summit.  Someone stopped because of moose and needed chains to get going again.  Next time I travel Hurley will be on a sled. Saw one truck going opposite way as me (chains) and one sled. Would say, don’t travel it unless you have chains and are ready for an adventure and self rescue. From goldbridge to east Hurley I was barely clearing in the two ruts.  Then from east Hurley for about 12 Kms it is smooth sailing then it’s major snow. Chains required. Thanks to Sue E for the update and photos!

Update from Dec 10: 50cm of snow at the summit and only one vehicle track that came over from the Bralorne side.

Update from Dec 5:  Road is clear, hard packed with slippery sections and -14 at the summit. Thanks to Sue Eckersley for the update and photo

Update from Dec 2: The snow starts a bit before the Tenquille corner and it’s hard pack snow/ice to the East Hurley then mixed with some dirt sections to Gold Bridge, watch for slippery sections.  The Grader has cleared the summit one lane wide with some pullouts. Temp was -10c at 2pm.

The logging company will be finished work this week and it will be the end of the snow plowing.
