Step 4

Chain up!

You’ll need chains on your tires to access the parking lot used for the trip. You can get them at Canadian Tire for around $100.

It’s currently a requirement from BC parks to have chains. If you don’t, there’s a chance they will ticket you, whether or not they are needed normally. If you don’t have chains or are unable to get any ahead of the trip, let us know within 48 hours of receiving this email and we will refund you your course fee.

  • Winter tires are not a replacement for chains
  • No matter the conditions of the road, BC parks requires vehicles to have chains on
