UPDATE ON THE SUGARBOWL MEADOWS/VIKING RIDGE CROSSOVER, SUNDAY, SEPT. 24TH

Sugarbowl-Grizzly Den Provincial Park has seen its first snowfall this week at higher elevations, some of which might linger or more might fall by Sunday. A little snow on wet vegetation on steep slopes can create the most slippery conditions that we encounter all year in the mountains, but it also brings some of the prettiest mountain scenery of the year. Please dress for early winter conditions on this hike and wear substantial footwear that has both good ankle support and good treads. Low-cut, lightweight hiking shoes are not likely to be suitable for this hike. Trekking/ski poles, gaiters, rain pants and bear spray are all likely to be necessary for this hike. The hike is rated Strenuous to Very Strenuous (D5dx) with over 1,400 vertical metres and some off-trail bushwhacking. The meeting time is 6:50 a.m. in the parking lot behind Prince George City Hall, 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 7 a.m. The carpool fee is $7. If you have any questions or would like more information, please call Mike at 250-962-2453.
