Updated Radio Restrictions
As of October 31st 2023 The Craigellachie Anstey – Gorge (0839.01) "Gorge Road” REQUIRES 2 way radios 7 days a week between Oct 31st and May 1st. No exceptions.
It has come to our attention that there was one incident today, March 6, 2023 between a heavy & light vehicle on the Gorge RR and one close call. Any interactions with logging trucks have the potential to be fatal and it is our understanding at this time that there were thankfully no injuries.
However, this incident clearly identifies the worst case potential outcome of not using radios properly and is the primary safety issue of travelling on the Gorge RR while industrial activity is occurring.
Unfortunately, recreational access to the Gorge RR could potentially now be restricted to all users which is something we all need to strive to avoid.
The GSTA would like to reinforce the importance of proper radio use on the Gorge RR. Strict adherence to proper protocols by all is absolutely required for continued recreational access to the Gorge RR. See our touring page for more details.
A Valentine's Day update from our friends at K3:
The Gorge is a busy place at times - radio use seems to be pretty much near 100% - which is what is needed. Still need to try to get folks to do more than just call their KM's - to actually listen, but hey it is a work in progress!
Logging is ongoing - lots of traffic - though most of the 1st round of hauling seems to be done by +- 8 am.
So far the road is holding up nicely - only the bottom 1 K has some melt freeze and a bit of breakup.
Nice to see folks keeping the MIN updates coming - we have Avalanche.ca forecasters on staff and they appreciate the info. Especially in places where there is a lack of "Industry" reports from the INFOEX.

December 24th update from our friends at K3 Catski:
Merry Christmas from K3
Quick update for those that maybe missed it... logging is wrapped for the Holidays (will resume Jan3), the road is only being plowed to keep access.
Today there was 30-40 cms of new snow and it might get complicated if no plowing occurs over the next few days even with high clearance and 4x4).
The Highway is a parking lot too - high avy hazard in the Pass and 3 Valley.
Stay safe - stay warm ( I do not miss -35 from Wednesday).
Be sure to check Drivebc and Avalanche.ca - there is lots of change happening.
Be sure to thank Santa for the snow if he drops by later tonight.
Yesterday, December 17, 2022, a group of people unloaded sleds at 6k on the Gorge Road and rode them up to 15k and back down. The picture above shows them parked at 15k. Not only is this extremely dangerous to all involved its illegal and jeopardizes the Gorge FSR staying open to public.
A reminder for everyone on snowmobiles on FSR's:
Please, please, do not sled on the Gorge FSR, share this and help keep the Gorge FSR safe and open!
