Starr Creek Cabin Closure

posted Dec 7, 2012, 4:38 PM by Bulkley Backcountry Ski Society News   [ updated Dec 7, 2012, 4:39 PM ]
Please be advised that the Starr Creek Cabin will be *closed effective
immediately*, due to risk to public safety associated with avalanche
hazard.

The cabin is located at UTM 9U 595560 6035690, near the head of Starr
Creek, approximately 45 kilometers southwest of Smithers, BC, within the
Telkwa Caribou Recovery Area.

This cabin location was reviewed by professional avalanche consultants for
Recreation Sites and Trails BC, and found to be located in the run-out zone
of a large avalanche path.

The review recommends relocating the cabin to a nearby safe site, however
in the interim, the cabin will be closed until further notice. This
presents an opportunity to improve public safety and recreation amenity,
review cabin management, and to ensure continued future value and use for
recreationalists. Please refer to attached map for your reference.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the District
Recreation staff using the below contact information.
