Golden Ears Provincial Park is open again after a snowfall created hazardous road conditions.

Alouette Park Management informed the public about the closure online Friday, Feb. 17.

“Day-use and camping is CLOSED due to hazardous road conditions,” read an online post by the management company.

Park manager James Hall noted Golden Ears Park received a large accumulation of snow overnight.

“We have closed the road due to public safety,” he said.

The closure, he said, would be temporary until public travel on the roadway is safe again.

He is optimistic, though, the road won’t be closed for long.

“The snow is melting quickly and I expect to reopen the park in the next hour or so,” he said adding that Rolley Lake Provincial Park remains unaffected as the park has only received an abundance of rain.
