    ACTIVE LOGGING on Tulameen and Britton FSR’s Monday-Friday.    10-K sledders need to drive to 10-K parking lot to unload.   No sled’n allowed on plowed roads.   Loggers using VHF channel RR#8.


Welcome to Coq Snow.  Our riding area is just off the Coquihalla Highway, Exit #228 (Britton Creek rest area) between Hope and Merritt B.C.  (Show Map And Directions).  We have great riding areas for Beginners to Expert riders.  We groom over 90 Km of trails to make it easy and fast to access the Alpine (Henning Alpine 6Km from Parking lot, 10-K Alpine is 15Km in).   We even have groomed trails through the Alpine so beginners can also enjoy the Alpine.  We have some areas with Simple Terrain so you can have a fun/safe day even during High avalanche conditions.  We also have two cabins in the Alpine stocked with split firewood.  All the wet West Coast weather dumps as snow on the Coq, so frequent Awesome snow days. There's also accommodations right next to the riding area... Coquihalla Lakes Lodge.  We have our own parking lot, so lots of room for any size rig you might have and very easy access just off the Coquihalla Hwy (4x4 recommended).  We also added a loading dock and a heated changing room in the parking lot area...  how about that.  Check out the Coquihalla Summit for an awesome sledding experience.

Snow Conditions

  • Nov 16 Thu – only 45cm base around 10-K cabin ridge, should be more in the back.  Henning has fair bit more snow… 60cm plus.  Looks really nice up top but be careful, still good chance of hitting rocks and junk under the snow at this point.


  • Nov 15 Wed – good 30cm in 10-K parking lot, maybe 15cm at 0-K parking lot


  • Nov 5 Sun – 20cm powder at parking lot level (not base snow) and about 60cm in alpine with minimal base snow


  • Sep 18 Mon – first time snowing in Alpine for 2017-18 season


Grooming Reports

  • Nov 17 Fri – cleared 0-K parking lot


  • Nov 16 Thu – Groomer track-packed up to 10-K Cabin with load of firewood and fixed uglies on trail UP and cleared 10-K parking lot.   Henning Trail UP also track-packed up to cabin… much easier to get up there now.


  • Nov 16 Thu – will track-pack into 10-K and fill-in creeks and holes and clear 10-K parking lot.    Will try track-pack Henning if it snowed enough Wed.


  • Nov – we usually start Grooming 3rd or 4th week in November.  We need 30cm of packed snow at parking lot elevation before Grooming
