Squamish Valley Update

Squamish main FSR closed at the 23 km mark - Turbid Creek I think, due to road repair over the creek. But fully clear of snow to that point. Was able to get up to the 6 km mark or about 3000 feet on the 700 branch before hitting snow (and pretty significant blowdown).

Ashlu Main is closed at the bridge at the 7km mark from squamish main. Big concrete blocks are blocking access, but signage says 2 ton load limit for the bridge. So I'm sure fine on a bike, but standing there, alone, looking at the raging river below disappearing over the falls to the right I got a little sketched out and turned around. Ashlu A600 road is washed out at the river at the 12km mark. Beautiful ride nonetheless. And squamish Main has been graded at least until branch 200 where I turned off

Checked out Indian Arm but only got to about to about 10KM from Hwy 99 before i hit too much snow that I wanted to deal with solo and in my running shoes. I'd insert pics and the KMZ file but for some reason in Fire Fox I can not attach any thing. When I click Manage Attachments it just opens the window and has a spinning circle above Add Files that never stops. I'm emailing Tom

Was that 10KM from the highway or beginning of Indian Arm FSR. 10Km from the beginning of the FSR should be around the highest elevation, no? Thinking it should be passable soon...Like this weekend.

From the Valley Cliff parking lot to the first place where there was barriers etc a few years ago is about 10KM and I didn't make iit that far but I was about 2kms away without hitting enough snow I didn't want to deal with it solo. Otherwise with the rain we have had etc go for it this weekend As I mentioned if you want to ride in Squamish shot me a PM

Any recent updates on Squamish Main / Elaho FSR? Last summer the bridge was out near Glendinning Provincial park so didn't get to the (dead) Elaho Giant, but an easy ride for novice ADV riders.
What's the current condition of the Indian Arm FSR? last fall it was tough slog for novice ADV riders on a dry sunny day.
How far can you expect to get this weekend on ADV bikes - with friends that have moderate skills?

I was up Indian Arm this past Sunday and snow is not passable at the 10 km mark from it's start (where it branches from Mamquam FSR). Back in May the Squamish Main (Elaho) was closed at Turbid Creek (23 km) for culvert repair, but not sure if that is complete or not - Forestry site doesn't mention it anymore so might be. Was planning on heading up there early Saturday if anyone else is interested. Point of caution - my understanding from a forestry buddy is that once you hit the burn up Elaho, risk of rock fall and slides are very high due to slope instability.

Just got back from Elaho, reached the 70km mark before I ran out of time and had to turn around. But Turbid Creek culvert repair is complete and had 4 short stream crossings - no more than axle deep.
