Those who brave the long cold road in have been rewarded with good snow and stunning views this week.
Logging is scheduled to be completed on Dec 27th evening, which therefore means that Canfor will now only maintain the road to the Mitten Lake turn off (7km). The Golden Snowmobile club will be paying for road clearing on Dec 29th from the 7km to the 21 km. Updates on maintaining this road will be a week by week decision.Â The access this week may be the easiest Silent is going to get this winter so we suggest you go for it.
