Avalanche Canada Urges Respect for Restrictions on BC Highways

Backcountry recreationists in southwest BC asked to respect non-essential travel restrictions.

All of us at Avalanche Canada are thinking of those who have been affected by the ongoing weather-related disaster in southwest British Columbia.

Many major routes commonly used for backcountry access are restricted to essential traffic only. We encourage everyone to be aware of and adhere to the travel restrictions that are in place to support recovery efforts. Now is not the right time for recreational travel in many locations. Look for up-to-date guidance from sources like DriveBC or the Province of BC travel advisories website when planning your trip.

Please consider donating to charities, such as the Red Cross, that are collecting funds to help those who need assistance.
