    As it was only Pattee and myself we decided to hike Reservoir Trail. It was a beautiful day and it was great to be in the fresh cool air.

      I went to Buntzen on my own, just started little bit later, around noon when it was warmer. Roads were clear and Buntzen trail looked beautiful in the snow. I will post some pics.

    No extra snow overnight in my area and couldn't find any info re Buntzen. Around the lake should be ok but we check Lakeview Trail once there.

    SNOW ALERT: BE PREPARED FOR A POSSIBLE CANCELATION. SNOWING REALLY HARD RIGHT NOW AND IS TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE NIGHT.
    CHECK AT 10PM OR 7AM TO SEE IF IT IS A GO OR NOT.
    :-( ON THE BRIGHT SIDE IT IS PRETTY!

    Hi everyone, it's snowing in Coquitlam and it will continue to snow during the night. It will be below zero in the morning. Olga just cancelled and let me know that streets are very slippery and she thinks 4 wheel drive will be necessary to get to Buntzen tomorrow morning. Would anyone be willing to pick me up in Port Coquitlam, my car is not equipped for winter driving.

    Hi Beverly
    Instead I am planning to go snow shoeing because it is closer for me to drive as Buntzen Lake. I did a lot of driving last week
    Thank you Annette

    There will be an extra $1 charge due to the fact we will go via the freeway.
