Remembrance Day delivered some lower valley snow that allowed access to the Allan Creek alpine for the day. Rain down low has taken some of this away and will affect access if we do not continue to get snow down in the valley bottom. Alpine snow depths average around 100cms and numerous natural hazards still exist.

The access to Allan Creek is via the “old trail” (take the left at 3km) and it remains very thin and will soon ice up as it normally does in early season. We recommend only experienced riders attempt to access this area until further snow falls.

Clemina and Chappell Creek areas cannot yet be access via the regular staging areas due to warm temps and very low snow levels..

Keep your wits about you and check www.avalanche.ca before your ride. If you do venture out, please report any of your findings to the Mountain Information Network through Avalanche Canada. This can be as simple as uploading a few pictures to the app.
