Participant Information

We'll drive up Furry Creek Main until we get stopped by snow. I have a key to the gate. Approach the summit from Downing Creek road. The road is in good shape for a couple of kilometers. After that, it's been a few years since I was up there. Hopefully, the road will be well snow covered. This is only for paid up BCMC members as that is a stipulation of our having the key to the gate. No guest members, sorry.

The usual avalanche rescue equipment is required.

The weather forecast for Thursday is currently for light snow showers and a FL of 800 to 1100 meters. There is supposed to be a lot of fresh snow on Wednesday above 1100 meters. Conditions could be good for skiing. If the weather forecast deteriorates significantly by warming up and raining the trip may be canceled. I'll confirm on Wednesday.
