October 17 Update

Posted by on October 17, 2021

Update Oct 18 – The strom was a wet one and most of it fell as rain and not snow. The Hurley summit is a mud track with snow on the sides.

44mm of rain in the valley last night and the cloud layers are low so we don’t know what conditions on the Hurley are like yet. Please send a report or make a comment below if you have been over today.

Last report was from the 15th and the summit was down to gravel with snow on the sides. Conditions can change rapidly up there and the two photos from Friday show morning conditions and afternoon conditions.

Bridge River Mechanical will be starting to work on the Hurley starting this week and there will be active heavy equipment till the end of October so please be aware and slow down when approaching them.

This site is user maintained so keep the emails coming to info@bridgerivervalley.ca. Thanks to everyone who has sent in photos and updates this year.

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, 4×4, 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.  Current conditions may not be reported on this site.  Have a safe drive!

    Came over the summit around 8pm. + 1 and slushy. Soccer mom wagon made it over no problem.

    The road at 4 pm this afternoon was slushy at the summit and the conditions were more or less like the photos as posted above. Very pot hole-y on the Pemberton side but otherwise an easy drive today.
