October 23 Update

Posted by on October 23, 2022

As of Sunday 23rd the road surface was still too warm to hold much snow and most of it is melting on contact or soon after. But this is the time of the year when things can change rapidly and we rely on user road reports to keep everyone informed. The road was graded last week and there have been lots of reports of flat tires so be prepared.

Thanks to Chuck for this report from Friday. Came down the Hurley on Friday the 21st and this is my report. Coming out from Bralorne I found light snow on the East Hurley, then a little more on the main Hurley starting from the steel bridge up to the summit. I would guess roughly 1/4” of snow closer to Bralorne and 1/2” at the summit. The thin layer of snow seemed to smooth out the road compared to my trip up. The big hill going down from the summit gets a little rougher and the roughest part is below the big hill through the switch backs with lots of exposed rock and rough sections. Once on the lillooet FSR the road get smoother compared to the Hurley.

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.
