Updated: October 20, 2018 | Print Report

There has been a large early season snowfall, however warmer temperatures have helped to reduce the snowpack. Expect trails to be variable in condition from packed snow and icy or slushy at higher elevations, to melting and becoming slushy or muddy, then drying out at lower elevations as temperatures increase. Early season avalanche conditions exist, take care while traveling in the backcountry.

Construction on the Spray Lakes Road above Upper Grassi Lakes will continue until the end of October. Travel is restricted to one lane, please expect delays.

Notes:

  1. Early season snow has started to fall. Check for avalanche information on the Avalanche Canada website. Pack appropriately for changing conditions, including traction devices/hiking poles, and don't forget to dress in layers!
  2. Be wildlife aware! Traveling in groups, making noise on trail, keeping pets on leash and carrying bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information.
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and snow/ice on trail.

Closures:

  1. Spray Lakes Road and Grassi Lakes Day Use - Construction Advisory and Partial Closure
