Trail Maps

Updated: October 17, 2017 | Print Report

Snow events occurred on October 11-12 throughout the day. It deposited roughly 10 cm of snow in valley bottom and upwards of around 20 cm in the alpine. The trails have been left wet and also muddy. Ice cleats come highly recommended at this time especially during the early morning hours. Residual snow patches may be encountered in shaded areas at lower elevations and count on snow being on the trail in higher elevations. As snow is accumulating in the alpine, be aware of overheard hazard such as avalanche danger and rock fall. It is important to bring the appropriate equipment and gear. Caution is strongly advised.

Notes:

  1. Bears and cougars are active - Carry bear spray, keep dogs on leash, remain observant and observe wildlife safety techniques
  2. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and other natural hazards.
