Hurley Road Snow Update

Thanks to Conny for sending in this update on the road conditions. I flew over the Hurley yesterday. If you are thinking of sledding across, heads up, there is about 1-3 km of open gravel just north of the Hope Creek bridge. It is off and on dirt and snow from about the 15km bridge to that point. Also, folks are driving to at least 7km up the Pemberton side.

Hurley Washout

After all that rain the Hurley has a washout on the Pemberton side, about 7km up on the Lillooet River FSR. Thanks to Ray Mason for the update and photo.

Kathy from Backcountry Snowcats sent in some more photos.

Nov 25 Update

Thanks to Patty for this update. Drove up Nov. 25 at about 2:30pm. Pmby to BRV. All good until the tenquille turn off. The snow starts about there and it starts to get icy as you climb Single track and and very deep as you progress to the summit. Very sloppy at the top and lots of sketchy parts, due to vehicles(side by sides) going off the track. Very easy to get tossed around. I went up in my old tacoma with no chains and not the greatest of tires. Just squeaked by and made it but it was a bit tense and hectic. Would not attempt again without chains (unless they magically plowed it!) The 2 guys before me told me they got stuck for over an hour as they slipped off the main single track. I got lucky and encountered nobody, it would probably had been a different story if I d met anyone on their way out. If you attempt it, be careful, cautious and pack accordingly. Sorry no pics, I didn’t let off the gas to stop, but like I said, getting deep and lots of potholes and slippery sections.

Nov 19 Update

Thanks to Dave Robinson for this Hurley update and photos.

BRV to Pemberton around 2pm, lifted Tacoma with good tires and didn’t use chains. Icy sections on the plowed bit to the Hurley East junction. Single set of tracks the whole way, getting deep near the summit. Rough bits and sometimes easy to get off line into the deeper stuff. Thaw/freeze making things more interesting. Definite signs of struggle and sporty near the top, needed to keep the momentum up. Summit to Tenquille turnoff single lane and getting down to dirt, smooth ride from there.

Nov 13 Update

 Thanks to Gerry for the latest update and photo. I Crossed with Ram 3500, 4 new studded tires. In some sections I churned a bit. 2 feet at summit.  Pemberton side great with the new gravel.  Snow starts at railroad bridge.  On  top along the  Hurley river potholes are deep and require dropping to a crawl.   Road plowed from steel bridge onwards by logging operations.

Nov 7 Update

Thanks to Sal Demare for the latest update: Drove it to Pemberton this morning and no snow or ice at all. Plus 1 at summit. The first picture is at the summit and the second with the fog on the south side of the summit. The Lillooet FSR is in rough shape, I will contact Sea to Sky Forest Service to see if they can get it graded.

Nov 3 Update

Thanks to Sal for this update: Conditions are very foggy so visibility is bad with some snow north of the summit and large puddles. Drive slow and it won’t be an issue.

Expect delays today

Thanks to Scott Holden for this update. Two tow trucks will be out on the hurley about the 8 Km to recover a gravel truck that rolled over yesterday. Expect delays as they will have the road blocked for a while. Graveling has been completed for this year. We will watch weather and may do some more grading from summit to 16 Km if it thaws out.

Accident on the Hurley

The Hurley FSR road bed material project has started and yesterday there was a MOTOR VEHICLE INCIDENT between a pickup truck and a gravel truck. The pickup truck was driving fast in the middle of the road and the gravel truck had to hug the side of the road but ended up going down the embankment approximately 50 feet. The driver was taken to hospital.

Speeding in a work zone is not acceptable so slow down in the work zones. The contractor had to yell at a couple of drivers to slow down. When you see a gravel truck on the road slow down and pullover and let them by, that is the safest thing to do for both drivers.

September 25 Update

The Hurley, for the Hurley, is in really good shape. Usually rough area on upper Switchbacks. Even Lillooet River FSR is in reasonable condition. 

And for the record…gorgeous this time of year especially with early morning light. 

Thanks to Debbie for the update.

July 20 Update

Thanks to Chuck for the latest Hurley update.
Came down the Hurley last evening via the E Hurley and the word for the day is ROUGH!  The E Hurley was rougher than last month and could use a grading. The main Hurley from the steel bridge (including the summit) is better that the E Hurley and also a little better than last month before the grading took place (no more big pot holes at the summit). The big hill on the Pemberton side is rougher than before and the switch backs are terrible! The Lillooet FSR is the only bright section. Looking forward to the eventual work and if waiting results in it remaining in place for longer, I’m all for that.
