The Sea-To-Sky Highway between Squamish and Whistler was slammed with 20 cm of snow yesterday and more is on the way today.
According to Environment Canada, “snow at times heavy will continue today with another 10 to 15 cm expected by this evening over Whistler and the Sea to Sky Highway north of Squamish”.
Snow is forecast to change over to rain this evening along the Sea-To-Sky Highway and in Whistler tonight.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Likewise, drivers must be using winter tires and could face a fine if they fail to do so.
You can check if you have winter tires by seeing if they have either the Mountain Snowflake symbol or the Mud and Snow (M+S) symbol. They must be in good condition and have at least a minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm.
If caught without proper winter tires on these designated routes, the fine is $121. Furthermore, if you don’t have minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm, get ready to fork out another $109.
