I went in to see where the snow level was on our way back from Penticton last weekend.

You can forget Whipsaw to be free of snow for a while. :-(

The snow starts just past the horse barn and unless you have cat tracks, you won't make it a foot.

Some Rovers tried to make it through last weekend :shock:

They came in through Champion Creek up to Lodestone and were on 5-6 feet of snow at times. On Friday it took them 8 1/2 hours to go 1.5 kms. They camped at Lodestone lake Friday night then headed down to Coalmont Sat.
Looks like late August/early September 'may' be dry enough to roll through. Before that, would be interesting though. Bring the mud tires !

Makes me want to throw on chains and dig through... :-D

I'll be organizing the whipsaw trip but in form of email distribution / contact as it's easier to keep track of who's coming and when/where to meet up.



Send me an email at jfarsang@gmail.com if you would like to join up on the whipsaw trail this year weekend of Sept 10-12.



Update on the trail :

Toyo's made it but it won't be for another few weeks till it gets doable with Delica's.

One of the Toyo's hydrolocked the engine and had to get pulled out. Some crossings (mandatory) are too high unless you have a snorkel.

The Whipsaw is open for regular business as of this weekend.
There was only one spot with snow, and that was going down toward Wells Lake, and it was maybe 4" deep, and one on side of the trail, so the trail is snow free. Mud wasn't a problem, either, as long as you stay on the trail.

On August the 20/22 weekend, there will be a large BC4x4 group heading through the whipsaw going in from the backside. :-D

I spoke with two of the organizers and Delica's, JDM's are welcome if anyone is interested in going. Should make for a fun trip with the different approach than we took last year.

Dates: Saturday, Aug 20th - 22nd, 2011
Meeting place/time: Tim Hortons at 7670 Vedder Road, Chilliwack, leaving at 11:00am sharp. Distance: 50 miles / 80 kilometers (trail distance)
Trail time: 10-12 hours
Difficulty (1-5): rating (2.0 - 3.5)
Vehicle classes: High-clearance, 4x4, limited slip differential or lockers would be handy, large tires >32" suggested, winch and /or tow strap maybe be required. (especially for Ray... he he he)

For those in the lower mainland, we'll be meeting at the
http://maps.google.ca/maps?q=7670+Vedde ... 9&t=h&z=16
Tim Hortons at 7670 Vedder Road, Chilliwack[/url], at approximately 10am to 10:30am. We will be LEAVING Tim Hortons at 11:00am exactly. Don't be late! The plan is to convoy up the Coquihalla and going in the back way through Brookmere, which is apparently shorter and more scenic. Jason from CruisinOffRoad has done this way before so we should be fine.

For those coming from the interior (and any latecomers), we will meet you at
http://maps.google.ca/maps?q=Lodestone+ ... 9&t=h&z=15
Lodestone Lake. We'll be setting up camp on the far side of the lake. We will be there before dusk Saturday evening.

We will be on CB radio and FRS/GMRS radio, both on channel 6.0. My cell is 250 216-2480.

Do you need a lift and a snorkel on a l400 to go through the water or can a stock l400 do whipshaw no problem?

Take a look through RichD's whipsaw run last year. Two stock L400's. One SWB and one LWB. They did nicely.

Ask Falco if you can co-pilot Miss Lil' Bitchi :M You will need to hang onto the supplied holysh bars. That van likes to rock n' roll.
