"Weather, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly..." Province of British Columbia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by amambaw
Province of British Columbia Warnings and Dangers: 18 reviews and 16 photos
British Columbia is a beautiful province, with many vistas and charming towns for you to explore. Travelling BC, you will see giant mountains, rolling plateaus, rainforests, and much more. The downside to these extremes in environment is the accompanying extremes in weather.
For those of you travelling in summer, be aware that in many mountain passes, snow is still a serious possibility. If you are hitchhiking, or driving yourself, make sure to always carry enough cash to stop over in a motel if the weather gets weird on you.
If you are daring enough to travel in winter (many of the views are worth it), make sure that you have a reliable form of transportation. If you are driving yourself, make sure that your vehicle is in top shape and has good tires. If you are sticking to the Lower Mainland or Vancouver Island, all-season tires should suffice. If you plan to venture away from Vancouver, equip your car with some good winter tires.
No matter what time of year you travel, check ahead for weather forecasts for your destination and the roads in between. I've travelled days where it was sunny and dry in my hometown, and an hour away in the mountains, it was dark and snowing madly, and this was in May!
