Seasonal Travel

Seasonal conditions exist on most roads.  Back-country roads may present rough and/or wet conditions with soft muddy sections.  Where avalanche paths exist, the roads may be partially covered with residual debris.  As always, caution is advised on all roads and back-country travellers should be aware of rapidly changing weather conditions including stream flows which may affect road conditions. Travellers should also be mindful when entering tsunami areas and pay close attention to tsunami evacuation route signage.

It is strongly recommended that travellers on winter roads take the following precautions:

  • Ensure your vehicle is well maintained and has reliable winter tires installed
  • Always carry chains
  • Ensure your vehicle is equipped with an emergency kit - i.e. first aid kit, shovel, axe, matches, lighter, blankets, rope etc.
  • Drive accordingly to road and weather conditions
  • Notify someone of your departure time and expected time of arrival at destination
  • In extreme conditions, re-evaluate the need to travel

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
