BC Timber Sales (BCTS) forestry operations in the Snowden Forest, north of John Hart Lake, are planned to restart in spring 2018, with operational phases continuing through 2019.
The area is part of a working demonstration forest where crossover will exist between recreational uses and forestry operations. In the interest of safety, public access to some trails will be prohibited during road construction and harvesting activities. Notifications of affected areas will be provided well before operations begin.
