February Snowy Month

Shortly after my last post January good weather and the cold spell at the start of the month turned into snow.  We had a week or 10 days of snowy weather which finally got the ground covered in the lower valley by up to 12" of snow that has held on and is only starting to shrink with sunny days and wind.


So far we still have nothing to complain about this winter, possibly a light snowpack in the mountains and smaller runoff will be the outcome.  Grizzly

  1. Hallo I have a question about bears watching. I was in Bella Coola last time three years ago and I was no so good for bear watching (not a lot). Is it now better (end of september). Thanks

    1. Generally from mid August to the end of September is the prime bear watching period. It is a lot dependent on the strength of the salmon runs. If we have a strong run of spawning salmon then the bears will be down in the valley and you will have opportunities to see them. I seem to remember three years ago was a poor year for salmon, hopefully we have an average or better year this year. Grizzly

  2. How is spring treating you? We've had periodic rain interspersed with nice warm sun. Time to get out and garden down here in Powell River. - Margy

  3. It's been slow and relatively cool. Still lots of snow in the mountains, but things have greened up pretty good this week. Starting to get the garden ready, hopefully we get some 'typical' warm May weather! Grizzly

  4. I read now that the ferry to Bella Cool don't exit any more. Is it true ? I wish to come to Bella Coola this summer but without ferry it is impossible (to long way from William Lake and back)

  5. I will stay in Bella Colla next September. I have a question: is the big campground in Park open or they are only places in small one?

  6. How's the trails in Tweedsmuir doing. Heading in for a week at the Rainboe Range. Too bad about the smaller ferry, would have loved to take the boat over

  7. Just a short note to say thanks for this blog. I found it a little while ago and have now read every post to date. It is an incredibly useful resource. The phenological work is fascinating, and your commentary and photos of Bella Coola and the surrounding area make me long to visit. One day I would love to spend some time exploring out your way, perhaps stay a while. As someone living in the north of Scotland, it is always interesting to look for links to this area and the past and Alexander Mackenzie is buried two and a half hours drive south of me.

    Thanks again for all the time and work you have put in here.

    Alex
