UPDATE: Snowstorm dumps 23 centimetres on Bulkley Valley

Drive BC reports slippery conditions on Hwy 16 from the Hazeltons through Houston

A snowstorm that hit the Northwest early Nov. 17 dumped 23 centimetres of snow on the Bulkley Valley.

No major collisions were reported for the Smithers area, but Drive BC is still reporting slippery conditions from the Hazeltons all the way through to Houston. Those conditions also extend to halfway between the Hazeltons and halfway between Burns Lake and Fraser Lake.

Drivers are advised to be careful travelling this route.

The snow began early Nov. 17, intensified through the day into the evening and tapered off overnight.
