Dec 4 Update

Posted by on December 5, 2019

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. ?
