Meadows-in-the-Sky Parkway - is it open now?

Hello,

Is Meadows-in-the-Sky Parkway open now? I'll be there in a couple of weeks (July 2nd) - Parks Canada website says it is usually opens up in late June/early July.

Thanks!

I think it's very doubtful. There was a lot of late-season snowfall and it's has not been a warm spring. The following was posted by the "Mt. Revelstoke and Glacier NP" social media person on the "Parks Mountain Safety" facebook page:

"Second highest snowfall recorded for March at the Mt. Fidelity research station in Glacier National Park - 315 cm of snowfall. The highest recorded season was March, 2011/2012 with 324 cm. The average over 49 yrs for March is 192 cm (since 1965/66). Rogers Pass was impressive as well, with 111 cm more than average over the past month."

Would the weather beining in high 20s/low 30s (C) in Revelstoke help? I've checked Parks Canada website, it says "Meadows in the Sky Parkway is open for vehicles to Snow Forest view point (12km)".

Hi Vit007,

Thanks for your question about Mt. Revelstoke National Park! Krp329 is correct, the snowfall in Revelstoke was well above average this winter and the snow melt is behind schedule.

As of this morning, The Meadows in the Sky Parkway is open to 20kms, to the Caribou Cabin. The drive up to this point is lovely, and you will be treated to amazing views of the valley and Colombia River at the multiple view points along the way. The remaining 6kms of the Parkway and the trails at the summit are currently snowbound.

As the weather in Revelstoke has been warm and conditions can change rapidly, I would recommend checking the Parks Canada Trail Report for the most up to date information. It can be found at www.pc.gc.ca/apps/tcond/cond_e.asp… Alternatively, you can speak to the knowledgeable staff at the Revelstoke Visitor Information Centre located at 301 Victoria Road West (from 9 am to 7 pm) or the Parks Canada staff at the park gate on Summit Road (from 8 am to 5 pm).

Hopefully this answers your question and you enjoy your time in Revelstoke!
