Hurley Winter Update – January

Posted by on January 16, 2013

Conditions have been great on the Hurley!  Today it was warm and sunny above the valley cloud layer with a temperature inversion.  The road on the Pemberton side is plowed past the outdoor school to the parking lot maintained by Backcountry Snowcats and they have been grooming the Hurley from the parking lot to the Hope Creek turnoff so the road is in great shape.

Unfortunately winter logging is active on the Gold Bridge/Bralorne side and Interwest Logging have plowed from Gold Bridge to the East Hurley junction and all the way to Bralorne.  The road is snow covered so sled access is still possible while temperatures remain cold.  Please be aware that you are sharing the road with logging trucks, skidders and other heavy machinery so use the road at your own risk.  The Mineshaft Pub has limited gas until Jan 23 when the gas truck comes.

Avalanche danger will increase with these warm alpine temperatures so check the Avy Report before you head out.
