    Yea good luck with that. There is tonnes of snow as far as I'm aware and it isn't exactly warm yet ^^ that far north I don't even think I'd consider it until mid May, even alot of areas around Kelowna still are covered in snow !

    There was a more than normal amount of snow in that region this past winter and probably more coming down as I type this. The only way bears will come out early is if they did not get enough nourishment to carry them over the winter. I would expect that snow linger there well into May even if there is a significant increase in temperature which could result in high water taking our roads. You would not want to get trapped on a deadend road.

    I snowmobiled from Barkerville on Thursday, about 3ft on the level, the 3100rd is ploughed but you cannot get off of it for the amount of the snow. Will be 5-6 weeks before the ground is clear at best.

    Some of the main roads are clear and good to go if you just want to rip your new quad around.
    blackwater is clear the whole way
