Avalanche in the Tet?Avalanche in the Tet?
Alert / Warning Monday, January 22, 2007

Sorry, this is not a post, but I felt I would get a straight answer here. Me and three friends were thinking of showshoeing into Batchelor Cabin from the trailhead up Gray Creek FSR. We are new to the mountains and would love any knowledge of avalanches on this stretch of the Tet. By looking at the map it appears to be fairly novice and low risk, but local knowledge always rules in my books! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

+4'c at parking Lot B, road is not plowed and has deep ruts very hard to drive on. The parking lot is around 1 foot of compact snow and very hard to drive in. Take my advise and park at Lot A. Or wait till SCRD plows road as Snow cat is up there. Maybe they will plow the lot and road.
Almost half the snow that was on the Quanset hut has melted so must be very wet under all that snow. Reports have said it is much warmer up top then at Lot B. Road to Lot A is passabe but some icey sections. At this point the road from Lot A to B is not passable for the snow plow.




Grouse and Cypresshave +8Grouse and Cypresshave +8'c at 3:30pm

Current Conditions Thursday, January 25, 2007

The access to P.lot B is very difficult from P.lot A. The last 2 km of the main road is extremely icy even if the warm weather is helping. Most trails at the top where roughly groomed this week with the hope that the colder weather( +2C at the hut today)will help set the trails for this sunny week-end.

Road is extremely Icey and slippery CHAINS ARE A MUST FROM BRIDGE UP. Road was plowed last week but with the melt and Freeze has made thick ice for a road surface. Several 4x4s have been in the Ditch. This is a winter road and NOT SANDED. The best tires will not help on ICE. Tow Trucks will not come pull you out. Use this road at your own risk.
Almost like spring conditions.Water crossings are melting and Lakes maybe dangerous after the warm weather we have had.
Have a safe and great snow day.

Current Conditions Saturday, January 27, 2007

Awesome Day on the Ridge there were more then 28 vehicles up there at 3pm. Many more had come down earlier. Snow is very frozen and icey Temps during day are more like spring. Many ditches are opening up and they are very deep. Use caution near edges as snow may give way.
The road was in fairly good shape compact and heavy layer of ice. Winter tires are best Allseason will not give the traction required.
Please back your vehicle as far back as you can to leave lots of room on road. Move off the roadway as much as possible as many others will be going up too. Take a little sand if stuck after parked.
Have a Great safe snow day.
