Tet road might not be plowed as driver out with bad BackTet road might not be plowed as driver out with bad Back
Alert / Warning Monday, January 02, 2017

Please keep using chains try to spread tracks out to pack done full width of the road. Using Chains is much safer and helps maintain the road. Conditions can often change greatly while up at Cabins.Fresh and Thaws or large snowfalls can change driving conditions.
Road is Narrow and often must slow to a crawl to pass oncoming vehicle or might have to back up to let someone get by. Watch you dont slide into ditch. Often you might be driving on a foot of compact snow and ice.
Already this season people using chains is making a big differance. The chains for the snow plow are almost 100 lbs each and I have to use 4 of them only takes 10 minutes to chain up the plow Please take 5 mins to use chains on your 4x4 or allwheel drive.
Speed limit is 30kmph in summer in winter slow down watch for people walking or skiing up. Some people have almost been hit because of fast drivers. Stay safe Enjoy the back country Safely

Tet road Snow Plow Broke downTet road Snow Plow Broke down
Alert / Warning Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The Plow is now out of Service due to sever damage. Ice and steel dont mix well Steel looses. Use Chains all 4 wheels spread out your tracks as best as you can. Makes big differance to keeping road open. there is heavy ice under snow and compact snow on top of ice does not give much traction. Using chains helps to break up ice and pack road down. Last hing we need is to frozen ruts Take care drive safe,

Tet road is a mess. Soft and iceyTet road is a mess. Soft and icey
Alert / Warning Thursday, January 19, 2017

Advise not to drive on it till it strikes upmor freezes. Best to cancel trips till conditions settle. Frost coming out of road slowly not letting water drain it goes to soapy mud when driven on. Up higher deep compact frozen snow road has gone to mush even chains won't help. If you get stuck no one is going up to pull you out. Thaw and freeze makes mess of road. Stay safe.

If you do go up don't just drive around large rocks on road or over tree branches please use respect and move them the best you can

road condition?road condition?
Current Conditions Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Can anyone add any information on the current road condition? I've got a HC 4x4 with 4 chains, but if the road is going to be a mess of melted icy ruts and mud, I'd prefer to just walk. In that case, any indication on how much distance that would add?
