Just got down from skiing at Dakota. Still to much snow to drive to Quanset hut. But a few bare patches on trail up. Snow is mostly in shaded areas and areas that got packed down by groomer. Trail east of Gate is free of snow. Temp at Top was high of 26'c and lows of 6'c. Probally another 3 weeks before snow will be gone off trail up. Even chained up you can not make it and Quads just dig in. Take care have fun and remember less then 5 months to go till white stuff will be coming.

Please go to Dakota ridge .ca website and do the survey to show Big wigs that you are interested in the road being improved. Only with input from the public will the gears get moving. There is info there on what is to be done hopefully for this coming November.

Was up that way yesterday and the road is in good shape. There are some potholes but nothing too bad. Patches of snow starting at about 1000m, with hard compact snow on Spipyus Peak (1250m). No snowshoes needed. Good hiking is here! Sorry snowman, I can't wait for the paddling and hiking season!

Current Conditions Saturday, June 16, 2007

Has anyone recently gone up to McNair cabin via the McNair FSR? We're hoping to go up to Panther Peak in the next few weeks while there's still some snow on the ridge and wonder what the current conditions are like (muddy and wet we suspect).

I heard that the plow guy is selling his truck. So what is going to happen for plowing. I hope these road improvements go ahead. Will the road be plowed to the top area. I heard they are fixing up the Tet road what about Dakota. Is it True CNI is going to build a ski area.

Dakota RidgeDakota Ridge
Current Conditions Monday, June 25, 2007

Was just up for a hike above Quanset hut. Snow starts almost 1-2 ft deep about 1km above Quanset hut. Some animals of 2 legged variety have tipped over both Outhouses. Guess they got boared with cow tipping. Don't know what the temp is up top because someone swiped both thermometers from the Quanset hut.
Thanks to CNI the road is brushed out all way to 8kms. Makes it alot safer but still have to use caution because of Logging trucks.
Only 3 months till snow starts again.

Just heard on the radio news that there should be news about Grant money to improve access to ridge soon. So cross your fingers that we all get good news and may be able to drive to top this winter. keep listening to CKAY for news. They might be first to know about it.

Alert / Warning Thursday, June 28, 2007

There is a bit of a delay for news on the money for road improvements etc. Hopefully they should hear in next week or so. As there is only 4 months before snow starts again. Just hope plans are being made to get things going.
