Added the itinerary on the first post... Some more specifics to come but that is the basics... PM me or post here if you have questions, comments, concerns. If you are interested or Likely to go, please post up as I'd like to get a head count within a week to see how many decals to get made, and some other 'planning type stuff' :)

Thanks, Eric
I am planning on going on this run.

YES!

I saw that today... Planning on getting ahold of the fire authority in BC on Monday but as you know it, are these restrictions usually or rarely lifted? Here in Oregon, fire restrictions usually last until the fall rains come... So I'm very pessimistic now that this will happen but will find out more in the next couple days.   

What do you think?

Had an email exchange with the BC wild fire service earlier in the week.

It doesn't look promising for the ban to be lifted in time for us to enjoy the trail. So with a heavy heart, I'm cancelling our adventure. Hopefully there is enough time for people to make alternative plans and still enjoy the last bits of summer. This trip will be on our list for 2018 but will be much earlier in the year!

Thanks, Eric

I would NOT count on getting through the Whipsaw in June. I was in the area in May of 2016 and there was still easily 2 feet of snow in the shade as soon as we started gaining some elevation. BC has had plenty of snow this winter (most in the world I hear) so I'd mark your calendar a month or two later. When I ran the trail it was mid-August and it was perfect. It would probably still be fine in mid to late September. Usually snow hits the 6000 feet mark around October.
