Freaky weather only +1 at 6000ft and -1 and snow at 7000ft.

Cold weather moved in. So if you are going hiking prepare for cold and wet and poss sunny periods. Guess you can not drive there now thanks to the slide.

Are`they logging dakota RidgeAre`they logging dakota Ridge
Alert / Warning Sunday, August 03, 2008

Seen a ad for tree falling contractors, sounds like a lot of trees are going to come down up there. Is it not a park up there. I have not seen any public info meetings for it. Do we need to start a protest camp or what. Where do we find more info on what is going on.
We do not need anymore clear cuts enough up there now.

Just wondering how the road and trails etc are. Heard they might have the road blocked by heavy equipment fixing road.
I have never been up in summer and was looking for a good hike. Is there snow up top still or what.

There may be some tree falling work and heavy equipment working on the Road before and after lot B. SCRD has hired some contractors to start work soon. Don't be shocked if you can not get up to ridge till work finished.

Alert / Warning Tuesday, August 12, 2008

There is a 30kph speed limit posted on the road up to Dakota Ridge. Says radar enforced but do not think they will be sitting up there waiting for you. But should watch speed anyways road is getting narrow from brush growing in on it etc.

Finally!Finally!
Current Conditions Wednesday, August 27, 2008

After all the talk, finally some action on the Dakota road.
Cudos! and thanks! to everyone involved in making this happen.

I beleive there are many, like myself, happy and more than willing to pay for skiing priveledges on Dakota Ridge if we could only get up there in the winter. In the best efforts of ride sharing and shuttles the reality is if you build the road we will come!

Happy Trails!

Great news about Dakota RoadGreat news about Dakota Road
Current Conditions Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Any one know when there might be some info from RD on what the plan is for this year. RDs website has not changed in some time. Is there any plan for ski lessons for school kids etc. I hope they will have a Tobogan run for kids.
I heard they had snow above 5500ft on Whistler. Is there any group to over see what happens up on the Dakota area.
We should have some user group or club, What happened to the Dakota Society.
Maybe the SCRD could post construction updates on this site so we all know what is happening.

Current Conditions Sunday, August 31, 2008

Was just looking through reports from last couple of years. At the bottom of the reports you can click on months from past 2 years. Looks like we can see some snow early oct, But heavy stay around snow will not be till November.
Also have been reading trail reports from clubtread .com some great pics of the Tet.

If anyone knows how things are going on the road work for Dakota or any new info on Tet road for the winter please keep us informed.
There will be a work party going up from Mcnair side next weekend to clear trail from that side. Contact Tet Outdoor club if you would like to help. Work parties are how alot of our trails get cleared. If you can come and help.
