    It sounds like people will need to be prepared for rain, snow and snow on the ground - they are forecasting snow on the ground up to 15cm in the valley floor.

    I've updated the driving directions to the trailhead. Sorry about the confusion. Please let me know if you are going to meet us at the trailhead instead of MacMahon stadium

    Question about the location:
    Nihahi ridge is on the south end of the Powderface Trail but the Dawson Equestrian is on the North end of Powerface trail.

    Is one of them wrong?

    • peter d

      No you have to drive approx 20km past the Dawson eq. At the point where powder face tr and 66 meet you turn right and drive approx 2 km the parking lot is on the left and go to the end of the parking lot.

      I may have worded it slightly confusing. The directions state the trail head is at the Dawson Equestrian and the directions given are for the Dawson Equestrian as well. Your directions sound more in the right direction.
