Tet RoadTet Road
Alert / Warning Friday, April 06, 2012

Seeing so many vehicles up at Tet with out chains scares the Heck out of me, Chains are a must getting stuck up there can block others in. It is spring down here but up there it is still winter and ugly road conditions.
I hope these people prepare better for there trips then they do for the drive up on a back country road that needs 4x4 and CHAINS.
5 mins to put chains on makes a big difference.

Busy Easter weekendBusy Easter weekend
Current Conditions Monday, April 09, 2012

Two of us went up for a day trip on Sunday and found 12 vehicles in the parking lot. Some chained up, some not. the last 200m of the access is hell - frozen lumps of ice and snow and huge divots made by vehicles without chains. Until then the road was 2 wheel driveable without chains. Victor's Landing offered lots of snow (the Parks sign is buried completely) but it turned to wet sugar in the afternoon. The cabins were all well used and it seems the new Stewardship programme is working well. The sign at the Y between Tannis and Batchelor is missing - not buried - the post is still there just the sign is gone. Guess someone wanted a souvenir.

Road to Dakota HutRoad to Dakota Hut
Alert / Warning Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Went skiing in the rain today April 11th. Very spring corn conditions were wonderful, HOWEVER--last 2 km of the road up to the hut and parking lot at the top were almost impassible with 4 wheel drive with 4 wheel snow tires. Deep soft ruts. Chains would have helped but probably made deeper ruts. I expect that the upper road will be closed shortly. This will be my last run to the top this year unless winter conditions return. BUT lots of snow so who knows.

McNair Cabin ReportMcNair Cabin Report
Current Conditions Thursday, April 12, 2012

Had a great Easter weekend up in the Tet, 3 of us went Friday morning all the way to McNair cabin, bridge was fine crossing at bottom of hill to Chapman Lake, McNair cabin was in good shape, hardly any firewood left, maybe a half a cord, still a fair amount of kindling. Cabin was almost snowed in. I estimate 30 ft of snow at least. The out house was buried under at least 20ft of snow, we dug that out, took almost 3 hrs. On the way home Monday we met 3 people coming down the hill from Steele, they had missed the Edwards cabin turnoff and were heading to Chapman Lake until we turned them around and gave directions back to parking lot. Posted pics and video at Tetrahedron Back Country Facebook page. Very special thanks to Bill Crawford (aka Snowman) for plowing the road. Cheers :)
