Road is rough and some wash outs happening slow down use headlights. Be prepared.

Current Conditions Saturday, November 18, 2017

Last report from Alpha was 13 inches snow st Dakota Road covered in snow probably lots more since Thursday. The Tet was reported to have 25 cms snow at parking lot and 50 cms at Bachelor cabin. Could be much more by now. Road not plowed Chains a must 4x4 with chains. No tow trucks will go up there. Slow down respect other road users use headlights to be seen sooner. There is no right away on back roads. Carry shovels you might have to dig out or a safe parking spot. Park well off the road leave room for large trucks etc to get by yours safely.
No toboggans on the roads very dangerous. Enjoy stay safe be prepared.
Video link on how easy diamond back chains are to put on. Best chains to use designed in Europe takes 1 min a wheel to put on much safer then cable chains

Tet work party fixed up a Bridge chapmanTet work party fixed up a Bridge chapman
Current Conditions Sunday, October 22, 2017

Some dedicated Volunteers managed to make a bridge work to cross Chapman creek. This bridge should work fine until new bridge is flown in next year. Many Volunteers have worked to keep trails and Bridges open. The Tetrahedron Outdoor club maintains cabins and trails. So your Cabin fees and extra donations help so much. Helicopter time to fly in firewood and materials is huge. If you Value the Tet park and Cabins please help Donate time or $. Check out the Clubs Facebook page for great updates and current info.
Snow is falling and conditions can change fast be prepared. No Cell phone service up there. Snow tires and Tire chains a must

Current Conditions Saturday, October 21, 2017

Please make sure you have snow tires and chains for going to the Tetrahedron park. The road can be very challenging when covered in snow.
It won’t be getting plowed as often so spreading fire tracks out will help keep the road driveable.
There maybe several work parties to do repairs to bridges in the park. The Tet club pays for it all BC parks does not maintain the park or cabins. So feel free to donate extra money to keep cabins and trails open. If you have construction experience you might help work parties.
It costs the club big bucks to fly construction supplies in by helicopter.
Be prepared for changing conditions.
Enjoy the park Volunteer when you can.

Warmer temps so snow up top all melted now. This winter I wont be plowing the road as I have to sell my Snow eater. Get good winter tires and Chains. Please use chains and spread your tracks out. This way the road will be drivable longer. If everyone spreads there tracks out the road would never need to be plowed. This will save the club having to hire a Grader to plow the road.
The trails are very wet now carry extra socks and good boots. Stay safe have fun

Help needed to work on trails etcHelp needed to work on trails etc
Current Conditions Tuesday, August 29, 2017

The TOC is now actively working on revitalizing the old and overgrown Batchelor-Mayne-Edwards Lake Loop Hiking Trail and the brushing will need several work parties to get it done. Is anyone available this weekend, next, or the one after that? What about mid-week in the next three weeks? If you are available, please respond to this email so we can coordinate some work parties. The temps are cooler and the work is not hard, just soft brush. This is an excellent and easy route and the plan would be to get the job done early and get back to Sechelt in good time for a beer and nachos at The Lighthouse or home in plenty of time to enjoy the end of the afternoon and a leisurely dinner.

It would also help our organizing if those of you who are interested could call or email George (at 604-886-3136 and, or Natasha at this email address or 604-740-1822, and we will then contact you to see if you wish to join any specific work party. And by the way, the blue and mountain huckleberries are fantastic right now.
