Lynn Headwaters Regional Park


Backcountry Closure in Effect

All backcountry routes are now closed because of hazardous conditions.

This applies to routes in the Grouse subalpine north of Dam Mountain and Thunderbird Ridge (e.g. Crown Mountain, Goat Mountain, Little Goat & Goat Ridge) as well as to routes beyond Norvan Falls (Hanes Valley, Coliseum Mountain and Lynn Lake).

Hazards may include:

  • Snow, ice and slippery conditions in steep terrain
  • Avalanche danger
  • Cornice drops
  • Rock and ice fall
  • Lack of visibility (whiteout caused by fog and/or snow)
  • No trail markers
