    1. The Shawnigan Lake Operation is closed to the public Monday to Friday. Weekend access may be granted on a weekend by weekend basis. Continue to check this blog site for specific weekend access.

  4. Regarding Comox Main; is 21.6 km a blockage or the place Timberwest takes ownership? Their site is no more helpful, by saying it's open but CL31 is not, yet not clarifying where that is. Can there not be a clear way to tell us whether or not we can drive from Elsie Lake to Comox Lake without driving 90 minute longer over the highways?

  5. At the 21.6 km point along Comox Main there is an Island Timberlands Gate. This gate is locked. This is not the location where Private Land ownership changes from Island Timberlands to Timberwest. To be clear, access from Elsie Lake to Comox Lake, along the Comox Mainline is closed.

  6. Will access past the 22km on Copper Canyon Main ever be back? Countless alpine enthusiasts have lost access to Mt Whymper due to this closure.
